Every month, President Obama's campaign dumps an incredible amount of data on the Federal Election Commission's servers, offering a glimpse into one of the largest political operations ever mounted. We sifted through the 243,000 records contained in this month's report so you don't have to. Here's what we learned:
-- First, the toplines. The official campaign, Obama for America, raised $45.9 million in the month of June. The Democratic National Committee pulled in an additional $20.5 million. Together, the two committees spent a total of more than $70 million -- $58.1 million from the campaign and $12.7 million from the DNC.
-- Obama's campaign still has $97.5 million in the bank, while the DNC is sitting on a stockpile of $37.4 million. Obama's campaign owes $2.3 million in unpaid debts, while the DNC has obligations of $5.3 million (It's common for political committees to maintain debts until after an election).
-- The report lists more than 237,000 individual donors from across the nation.
