by Adam | Barack Obama's September fundraising numbers have been announced, and they are simply staggering. He raised over $150 million dollars in the month, shattering the previous monthly campaign fundraising record of $65 million set by... you guessed it, Barack Obama in August.
The most remarkable number in my opinion, however, is buried below that topline. That number is $86. That's the average donation size in September. That number doesn't tell the whole story, because there's a lot of $25 donations there and a few $1000+ donations balancing it out. But the fact remains that Obama's fundraising would probably be record-breaking even if we ignore the big donations.
