Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama's re-election campaign reached a self-proclaimed milestone Monday receiving financial contributions from 1 million grassroots donors.
To signal this achievement, "2012 One Million Strong" is the new slogan that appears on the official campaign website. Positioned below that is an interactive ticker that tracks the number of grassroots donations received so far this cycle.
The campaign sent an e-mail from the president to supporters earlier Monday in anticipation of this accomplishment saying, "When you give, you're not just becoming one of the first million to help fund this campaign - you're representing millions more across the country who are counting on us."
"We've always relied on each other, not Washington lobbyists or corporate interests, to build our campaign," the statement continued.
