WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and Democrats raised more than $114 million for his campaign in August, a campaign official says.

The total far exceeds Obama's earlier monthly fundraising totals. He trailed Mitt Romney and Republicans in fundraising in July for the third straight month.

The official requested anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss the numbers before they were officially announced.
