Barack Obama is having a big month when it comes to fundraising.
Aides say Obama has raised 32 million dollars in January alone, matching his best three-month period from last year.
The money positions Obama for the February 5th primary contests, when 22 states will be in play for the Democratic nomination. Aides also say the money enables the campaign to advertise in states beyond the Super Tuesday contest next week.
Obama is advertising in all but two of the February 5th states and plans to begin advertising in states with upcoming contests, including Louisiana, Washington, Nebraska, Maine, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
