The Obama campaign broke all records for 2012 in Presidential fundraising in September 2012 with broad support and the most number of small donations ever with over $181 million raised.
The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised $181 million last month, easily eclipsing the $114 million that they had raised together in August. The number falls just shy of the all-time monthly record of $193 million, however, which was set by Mr. Obama in September 2008.Read more: http://www.post-gazette.com/...
On top of the great jobs report on Friday, the enthusiam of the Democrats after the Convention really boosted the fundraising in September for Obama in my opinion.
Mr. Obama has raised nearly half his money through small donations with aggressive solicitation programs targeting email, social media and cell phone texting services. Last month's fundraising also included the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., and a notable bump in the polls for the president in subsequent weeks.Read more: http://www.post-gazette.com/...
While I am more in favor of public financing of all elections, I understand the need for the Obama campaign and the Democrats to raise large amounts of money this year with the huge stakes in this election. Plus with the power of the Super PACs and dark money being spent, I can see no alternative.
I know all those fundraising emails to our email boxes from the Obama campaign helped persuade many to give multiple times. I know I succumbed to their daily appeals in my inbox multiple times. Just couldn't resist!
Well, Congratulations to all those who contributed to this big fundraising success!
I found plenty of neighborhood activist in my community just by signing up.

Members of your state legislature (including state reps/delegates and State Senators) are the ones who make the state voting laws such as Photo ID, early voting, etc.
I can guarantee you that if you volunteer with your local state representatives, you stand a good chance of being on a first name basis with your state representative and they are so important.
