DENVER (AP) - President Barack Obama and his party are
redoubling their fundraising efforts. They're doing it in the wake
of robust hauls by Republican rival Mitt Romney and a slew of
GOP-leaning super PACs that are raking in cash from party faithful
who are highly motivated to topple the Democrat.
Obama still has a significant edge, but it's shrinking rapidly.
That explains why the president is plunging back into
fundraising on Wednesday with a series of events in Denver and
California's Silicon Valley. He's looking to stockpile cash to pay
for his coast-to-coast organization, advertising to promote his
message and get-out-the-vote operations in key states.
