Sen. Barack Obamathe Chicago Tribune SEE RELATED:


Sen. Barack Obama raised $55 million in February, a stunning total that his campaign hopes will breathe fresh momentum into his presidential bid following losses in three of four nominating contests earlier this week.\ \ The Tribune has learned the Illinois Democrat raised the amount in an effort that shatters the record for money raised by a presidential campaign in a single month.\ \ The total came from contributions from nearly three-quarters of a million donors, including about 385,000 who were donating for the first time. Virtually all of the money - $45 million - was raised online.
