Obama raised $32m in January, beating his old 3-month record

He raised more in January than his previous record, which was over a three-month period, not one single month.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama raised $32 million in the single month of January, matching his best three-month period last year, aides said Thursday.

The money positions Obama for the sweeping Feb. 5 primary contests, when 22 states will be in play for the Democratic nomination. Aides also announced that with their money they can now advertise in states beyond the Super Tuesday contest next week.

It’s now a two-person race. Hillary and Obama are both going to need as much money as they can get over the next week, and probably month (should Super Tuesday not seal the deal).
