Obama raises more than $40 million in March

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.

    Wow – the longer this campaign the poorer the ghetto will get. Where will they get the money for their malt liquor and crack?

    Obama will never slow down
    I think he gets stronger with the time
    And he will be even more prepared when the general elections come

    Obviously many individuals are still supporting Sen Obama. People don't give you $40 million for not liking you.

    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.

    If Obama manages the economy like he manages his campaign, we're going to be in great shape.
