President Obama’s campaign set a monthly record for the 2012 cycle in September, hauling in more than $150 million, according to the Wall Street Journal:
The September total far surpasses the $114 million raised in August, when the Obama team snapped a three-month streak in which it was outraised by Republican challenger Mitt Romney. At the time, the $114 million was the most the Obama campaign had collected in any one month in the 2012 election season. The most the Romney campaign has collected so far was $111 million in August.
Both the Obama and Romney campaigns are raising money jointly with their respective national party committees.
Obama also raised $150 million in September of 2008, as Roll Call’s Steven Dennis points out.
