President Obama’s campaign raised a stunning $114 million in August, outpacing the GOP in the race for cash for the first time in months. Mitt Romney’s campaign took in $111 million last month. “No celebrating, because they’re going to have an even bigger September,” the Obama campaign tweeted, warning supporters off the idea that the Republicans may be on the run. “But now we know we can match them, doing this our way.” The Democrats flagged through the summer months as Romney’s camp raised in excess of $100 million each month in June, July, and August.
