Obama Raised $43.6 Million Last Month

"President Obama and the Democrats raised $43.6 million in April, adding to the president's edge over his rival, Mitt Romney, even as money continues to pour in to outside groups ahead of the fall campaign," the New York Times reports.

"The $43.6 million is a slight dip from March, when Mr. Obama's campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised a combined $53 million. But it does not count several large fund-raisers -- including one in Hollywood that reportedly raised $15 million -- that took place in early May."
