Kerry campaign raises $43 million in quarter

Sen. John Kerry will announce today that his presidential campaign has raised more than $43 million in the first three months of this year, smashing Democratic Party records and signaling a party-wide fund-raising resurgence for Democrats, according to top party officials.

It appears Kerry is not draining money from fellow Democrats as some party officials feared: The Democratic National Committee broke its previous record by raising $27 million, while the House and Senate campaign committees, which both topped $11 million, also set all-time highs this quarter. The figures, which were provided by top party officials, will be released publicly today.
