NBC NATIONAL NEWS — President Obama and the Democrats become the first in history to top the one billion mark, but Governor Romney and the Republican Party is ahead in fundraising so far this month - 111 million -- all being spent on the road.
President Obama is back at the white house this morning after hitting 8 states in two days - including something we've never seen before - a President voting early.
"It means you don't have to figure out how you'll take time off work, pick up the kids, and still cast your ballot if something happens on Election Day," said President Barack Obama.
If there's any doubt which state could swing this election, the President wrapped his whirlwind tour in Ohio, and Governor Romney spent all day in Ohio.

Today, Governor Romney is in Iowa, talking about the economy after greeting a crowd of 12,000 at a concert last night in Ohio. "This campaign is growing, the momentum is building, we're taking back America and it's coming soon," said Mitt Romney.
New polls continue to show a tight race: in Colorado, where NBC-Marist has the candidates tied, and in Nevada, where the President leads by just three points among likely voters.
