Obama ramps up fundraising in March
The president's campaign says it raised $53 million last month, 8 million more than it did in February.
President Barack Obama ramped up fundraising last month with March's total topping February's haul by nearly 18%.
Obama, the Democratic Party and two other campaign funds raised $53 million in March, the president's campaign announced Monday in a YouTube video.
The amount outweighed the $45 million raised in February and grew his Election 2012 total to some $350 million.
"This really is how this works, people building this organization $5 and $10 at a time to take on Mitt Romney," campaign manager Jim Messina said in the video.
The video appealed to potential supporters who could commit small amounts of cash to Obama's funds -- it noted that 97% of March donations were $250 or less -- as the campaign stuck to a grassroots message.
