President Barack Obama's re-election campaign says they brought in 43.6 million dollars last month.

The campaign made their announcement early this morning on Twitter.

The figure is down from the 53-million the re-election team raised in March.

The money is divided between the re-election campaign, the Democratic National Committee and affiliated Democratic state parties.

The 43.6 million dollars does not include the 15 million the campaign says they brought in last week at a fundraiser the president attended at the Los Angeles area home of actor and activist George Clooney.

Obama raised nearly 750 million, a record-breaking figure, during the 2008 presidential election.
