September Marks Successful Fundraising Month for Democrats

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The Democratic National Committee announced Monday that September was its most successful fundraising month of the year. It raked in more than $16 million last month, nearly $3 million more than their previous high in March.

"Demonstrating the increased energy we've seen in the polls and among our grassroots activists, more than 80 percent of the more than $16 million we raised in September came from low dollar donors online and in the mail," DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse said in a statement. "We've found that our supporters are now focused on the election, are responding to the president's message laying out the choice and understand the stakes."

To keep up what the Democrats see as growing momentum heading into the final weeks before Election Day, President Obama will head back out on the campaign trail later in the week.  He will make stops in New Jersey for a DNC dinner, followed by visits to Prince George’s County, Maryland to attend an event for Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Chicago to campaign for Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias.
