150,000,000 dollars

David Plouffe, campaign manager for Barack Obama, sent out an e-mail this morning with a video announcing the Obama campaign's financial figures for September. 632,000 NEW people donated to the campaign, bringing the total of individual contributors to Barak Obama to 3.1 million. The total collected by the Obama campaign for the month of September was more than $150,000,000. The average contribution was $86, according to Plouffe, with the most contributions coming from retirees and students.

I can't help but think that this enormous sum of money could be used for something better than having to refute the McCain/Palin campaigns smear ads and disgusting robocalls.
