Obama Reports Massive Fundraising Total

President Obama's reelection campaign released a video revealing that they have raised a combined $86 million for Obama for America and the DNC between April and June, shattering previous single-quarter fundraising records and far surpassing the campaign's stated goal of a $60 million haul. The funds were raised from 552,462 donors.

Technically, the re-election campaign raised $47 million while the DNC raised $38 million.

Morning Score: "The $86 million raised for Obama's reelection easily doubles -- and nearly triples -- all the major GOP candidates to announce so far, combined. While there are a few Republicans who haven't shared their numbers, including Michele Bachmann, the group that includes Mitt Romney, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman and Newt Gingrich has taken in just $33.1 million."
