Obama Raises 51M for July (UPDATED)

That is correct, $51 Million Dollars for the month of July.

The presidential campaign of Barack Obama says the Democratic candidate raised more than $51 million in July.

Obama's campaign began August with $65.8 million on hand, according to a statement the campaign issued Saturday in Chicago.

On Friday, the campaign of Republican candidate John McCain said the presumed GOP nominee had raised $27 million in July. That was McCain's biggest monthly haul since clinching the party's nomination.

McCain reported having $21 million available to spend.

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe (PLUFF) says that 65,000 new donors contributed to the Obama campaign and that more than 2 million now have given Obama money for his presidential bid.

Wonder what the DNC numbers are.
