Obama: $51 million July

When Team Maverick held a conference call Friday to announce they'd raised $27 million in July (plus another $26 million by the RNC), I wrote:
Probably Team Maverick expects Obama to announce huge numbers for July, and so they wanted to get ahead of the story by putting McCain's numbers in context of the large RNC/state GOP fundraising operation.
Prophetic powers vindicated:
Sen. Barack Obama raised $51 million in July, falling short of his one-month record, but raising enough to end the month with $65.8 million in the bank -- a formidable number for the middle of the summer.
By the way, somebody want to explain to me again how Republicans are "the party of the rich"?
