CHICAGO Senator Barack Obama (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/o/barack_obama/index.html?inline=nyt-per) raised more money in August than any presidential candidate has ever recorded in a one-month period, with his campaign disclosing on Sunday that it collected $66 million and drew 500,000 first-time donors to his candidacy.

The record-setting figures and particularly the new supporters who can contribute again before Election Day were crucial for Mr. Obama, who was heading into the general election as the first major-party candidate to forgo public financing. The campaign amassed its millions of dollars through an aggressive Internet drive, by attracting some of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/c/hillary_rodham_clinton/index.html?inline=nyt-per)s donors and as concerns increased over a tightening contest.

This thing is going to flip flop all the way to election day regardless of how much money either one has.

We already have a thread on this...


and no... McCain/RNC have 100 million more than Obama/DNC...

RNC has 110 million cash on hand... DNC has 17 million

So Mccain has nearly 194 million to spend, Obama has 94 million...


Lets assume you are right. Obama raised 66 million in August, he will raise at least that much this month, heck he raised 9 million tonight at a fundraiser in LA. I think it is safe to assume the Obama campaign will have more than enough to beat McCain with a paltry 200+ million being raised between Aug and the election.
