Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign announced Sunday that it raised $66 million in August, marking another record fundraising month for the Democrat. The August total was second to the $55 million Obama raised last February.
He reached the $66 million mark with help from more than a half million new donors.
Obama's total for August was almost $20 million more than the $47 million Republican rival John McCain raised last month.
Obama's campaign said that with the latest figures he had more than $77 million cash on hand.
