Obama Attracted Nearly Half A Million Donors

July 2, 2011

Almost half a million people contributed to President Obama's re-election campaign, manager Jim Messina said in an email to supporters on Saturday.

"More than 475,000 people decided to own a piece of this campaign in just our first quarter -- a promising sign of what's to come if we all stay focused and work together," Messina wrote. He did not disclose the total amount the campaign raised.

That's a good start for a campaign that ultimately attracted contributions from 3.95 million Americans, a number the campaign cited shortly after the 2008 election.

The campaign is expected to raise north of $60 million over the last three months. President Obama and First Lady Michele Obama hit big-dollar fundraisers outside the Beltway this week; Obama was in Philadelphia, while Mrs. Obama appeared at a fundraiser in Burlington, Vermont.

Campaign finance reports must be filed with the Federal Election Commission by July 15.
