Obama and Romney are both on pace to raise more than $1 billion with their parties by Election Day, the New York Times reports.

From the beginning of 2011 through Oct. 17, Obama and the Democrats raised about $1.06 billion, and Romney and the Republicans collected $954 million … The overall totals do not include hundreds of millions of dollars being raised and spent by “super PACs” and other outside groups, mostly to benefit Romney and other Republicans.”
