WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrat Barack Obama raised more than $19 million for the presidential primary elections from July through September, bringing his total for the year to nearly $80 million.
Obama's campaign today said the summer total includes donations from 93,000 new contributors.
The Illinois senator also raised money for the general election, making his overall contributions more than $20 million for the quarter.
The third-quarter contributions were less than Obama raised in each of the first two quarters. But the total still kept him at the top of the fundraising pack -- at least temporarily.
His closest fundraising rival, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, hasn't yet released her totals.
Overall, the Obama campaign has received contributions from 352,000 donors so far this year.
