Obama campaigned in New Hampshire Monday.
Speaking to a few hundred people gathered to meet him in Laconia, the Democratic presidential hopeful said, "This week I got a lot of attention for raising a lot of money."
Over the weekend, Obama's campaign announced it had raised $32.5 million in the second quarter of 2007, most of which can be used in the primary election. Late last week, Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announced the New York Democrat had raised around $27 million in the same time period, $21 million of which can be used in the primary race.
Obama called it "a wonderful thing because we've got 250-thousand people donating to our campaign....people who are giving 5 dollars, 10 dollars and 25 dollars."
He said 90 percent of his donations were $100 or less.
Touching on his usual themes of health care, education, climate change and terrorism, Obama proclaimed he is ready to lead the country. He also argued that the reason there are big crowds coming out to see him everywhere he goes is because there is a "burning desire for change" in America.
