Obama Campaign Aims to Raise $60 Million
President Barack Obama’s campaign is reaching deep into a bag of fundraising gimmicks to boost donations, with an eye toward a fundraising goal of $60 million as the clock ticks down to the end of the first quarter since the president announced his re-election bid.

Obama has been raising money for both his campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Campaign insiders told Roll Call the combined fundraising goal for both through the end of June is about $60 million. It’s an attempt to match what President George W. Bush raised in conjunction with the Republican National Committee during the same time period of his re-election campaign.
