"Obama Tops $30 Million"

Political Wire:
A source close to Sen. Barack Obama tells ABC News his presidential campaign "raised more than $30 million during the second quarter. That figure tops Obama's haul during the first quarter of the year, when he reported raising $25.8 million."

"Official figures have not yet been released by Obama's rivals for the Democratic nomination, although the campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., had said it expected to raise about $27 million during the quarter, and the campaign of former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., had publicly set a goal of $9 million."

Meanwhile, CNN notes Gov. Bill Richardson (D) has raised approximately $7 million.
