#NYT #Fund-Raising for #Romney Eats Into #Obama ’s Edge

The second paragraph of the article is the worrisome part --

 All told, Mr. Obama, Congressional Democrats and liberal groups have raised at least $547 million in this election cycle while Mr. Romney, Congressional Republicans, and the top conservative outside groups have raised at least $462 million, according to a review of reports filed with the Federal Election Commission through Sunday and interviews with officials.
Those figures do not account for all the money spent through tax-exempt issue-advocacy organizations that are not required to disclose their spending, like Americans for Prosperity, founded by the billionaire Koch brothers, who have reportedly pledged to steer at least $200 million to conservative advocacy groups by Election Day. Nor does it include money spent directly by unions this cycle.
