Obama raised $52 million in June

Obama’s $52 million

The Obama campaign rolls out its June fundraising numbers today, which meet the sky-high expectations the campaign faces and surpassed a recent wave of rumors of a relatively slow month.

The sum nearly equals Obama’s — and the American political — record of $55 million in February.

Spokesman Bill Burton emails that the campaign raised a total of $52 million in the month of June with an average donation of just $68, giving the campaign and the DNC have a total of nearly $72 million cash on hand.

The rumor is false, he is still able to raise money at a fast clip.
