(Washington, DC) -- Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has been a busy man when it comes to collecting campaign funds.
"The New York Times" reports Obama's camp collected 52-million dollars in June that doubled the amount raised by Republican John McCain in the same month.
The combined funds of the Democratic National Committee and the Illinois Senator are at just over 92-million, which is slightly under what McCain and the Republican party have at $95-million.
Obama's campaign manager David Plouffe revealed his team has developed a "very aggressive strategy" to reach a goal of $300-million in funds.
Obama's camp has been spending a ton on TV ads and offices in states where Democrats have not been competitive during previous elections.
