Barack Obama raised $150 million (£87 million) last month, shattering his previous monthly record of $67 million and allowing him to swamp the airwaves in the final stretch of his presidential race against John McCain.
The huge haul — by far the biggest in presidential history — came as Mr McCain gave a robust performance in a television interview, where he predicted a close finish but also said that he had pondered the thought of defeat to Mr Obama, an outcome he said that he could live with.
Mr McCain, speaking moments after his old friend Colin Powell, the former Republican Secretary of State, had endorsed Mr Obama, said that a loss would not devastate him. He said that he had thought about it, “but I don’t dwell on it”.

The Republican nominee continued: “I’ve had a wonderful life. I have to go back to Arizona and live … with a wonderful family, and daughters and sons that I’m so proud of. I’m the luckiest guy you have ever interviewed and will ever interview. I’m the most fortunate man on Earth, and I thank God for it every single day.”
If he lost, he told Fox News Sunday, “don’t feel sorry for John McCain and John McCain will be concentrating on not feeling sorry for himself”.
Mr McCain conceded that he was trailing, but pointed to several recent national polls showing the race tightening.
