Obama 2012 campaign breaks goal

The campaign to re-elect President Barack Obama thought on Wednesday it raised $86 million from April to June, exceeding its $60 million quarterly goal and eclipsing Republican White House contenders.

Obama's 2012 campaign said it received donations from additional than 552,000 people, with what it called "more grassroots hold at this point in the process than any campaign in political history."
