"We not only surpassed 10 million donations so far in 2012 to the campaign and the Democratic Party - a historic record for grassroots politics. We also raised $181 million in September from 1.8 million Americans - more than 567,000 of whom gave for the first time. That's by far our biggest month yet. More important than how much we raised is how we did it: The average donation was $53, and 98 percent of our contributions were $250 or less."

-- Obama campaign manager Jim Messina in an e-mail to Obama supporters this morning. Of course, the e-mail ended with a pitch for more donations. Natch.
