WASHINGTON, March 19 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack
Obama's re-election campaign raised more than $45 million in
February, increasing its financial haul month-on-month as
worries mount that Republicans could outspend Democrats in 2012.
In a statement released on Twitter, Obama's campaign said
348,000 people contributed last month and 105,000 people gave
money for the first time.
Nearly 98 percent of the month's contributions were $250 or
less, it said.
Obama's campaign and its Democratic allies raised a combined
$29.1 million in January. Campaign officials are concerned that
outside groups known as Super PACs could outspend Obama in their
quest to put a Republican in the White House.
