Obama raises $32 million in January

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.l.cnn.net/cnn/2008/images/01/31/art.obamamoney.ap.jpg caption=" Obama has raised over $30 million in January."]LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) - Democrat Barack Obama raised $32 million in the month of January alone for his presidential bid, CNN's Candy Crowley confirms.

That total roughly equals his previous best three-month fundraising haul.

The campaign would not divulge how much money it has on hand - a more accurate measure of a campaign's financial health going forward.

A campaign source also tells CNN the Illinois senator received contributions from 170,000 new donors in January.

The Clinton campaign would not indicate how much money it had raised in the same time period.

    If you want a Huge "Nanny Government ", Vote for Hilliary and Obahma, I'm sure "The Powers That Be ", have already decided on the ticket for the Democrats. If the Democrat ic ticket wins , it will be more of the same ,corporate America contolling our government. They will tax us into oblivion, and then make us come to their governent run charity programs, to be able to survive. We'll have to forget all about the promised "American Dream "obtainable and paid for with the blood , and peril of our fore-fathers, and mothers, and brave soldiers of today. Let's not let corporate America steal our "American Dream". Vote for someone who is honorable, intelligent, trustworthy, and knows how to lead usin– in the right path, to give us back our stolen freedoms, and honor as a country ,"that does not start unpravoked wars , and is a friend to other nations, He can help us repair our broken economy, and let us keep much more of our hard earned wages. WE ARE HEADED FOR A DEPRESSION", if we don't get Ron Pauls' help. "Don't Blow iT ," VOTE FOR RON PAUL, for President."

    I am contributing $25 more this month! I have NEVER considered giving to a political campaign, but I believe that Senator Obama will bring this country together to do what is right and not what advances their party.
