Barack Obama's campaign announced a March haul of more than $40 million, raised from more than 442,000 donors. There were more than 218,000 first-time donors, and the average contribution level was $96.
The figure is not official until the campaign submits paperwork with the Federal Election Commission. The official deadline for March paperwork to be filed is April 20.
The Obama campaign released the announcement the moment the daily Clinton campaign conference call began.

Its is a can of kick butt. Keep fighting the good fight Obama. You are the Poeples champ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For the people by the people...We're not sexist...We just ran a better campaign...Let's go make history together Hillary supporters.
Obviously many individuals are still supporting Sen Obama. People don't give you $40 million for not liking you.
Obama is the people's president.
Arab's Oil Money filters in, once again....
They are so desperate to Get Obama in the White House,
and controlling the Country... Does anybody take notice???
Na, too busy taking handouts....
Yes, we can!
Obama will be the next president of the United States. Democrats it is time to circle the wagon around the democratic nominee...
Onward to the battle against McCain
One word – WOW.
Obama = Loser in Novmber
I am impressed. Senator Obama continues to engage the ordinary citizen in this political campaign. He did not target the fat cats first. His camp is ready for a general election. If the superdelegates don't agree, the Democratic party is officially damaged for the next twelve years.
Announcing the moment the Clinton campaign conference call began? Sounds like old politics to me.
If Obama manages the economy like he manages his campaign, we're going to be in great shape.
Not as much as he raised in February ???? What gives?
Great!!! Democracy in action
This is crazy!! He's going to be able to eliminate poverty when he becomes President!!
Stand for Change
Fall Hard for the Same!!!
I LOVE YOU OBAMA ..........................
