Obama tops $30 million in second quarter




From ABC

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Reports: A source close to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., says his presidential campaign raised more than $30 million during the second quarter, which ended yesterday.

That figure tops Obama’s haul during the first quarter of the year, when he reported raising $25.8 million.

Official figures have not yet been released by Obama’s rivals for the Democratic nomination, although the campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., had said it expected to raise about $27 million during the quarter, and the campaign of former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., had publicly set a goal of $9 million.
