Obama leads Ga. fund-raising

ATLANTA (AP) - President Barack Obama continues to collect more money from Georgians than Republican challenger Mitt Romney, but the fund-raising gap between the two in the state is closing.

An analysis of campaign finance reports by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution found that Obama's re-election campaign reported about $283,000 raised from Georgia in April, while Romney brought in about $191,000.

The disparity narrowed considerably from March, when Obama outraised Romney by a nearly six-to-one margin because of a presidential fundraising swing that included a stop at filmmaker Tyler Perry's home.

Neither candidate appeared in Georgia to raise money in April.

Overall, Obama's campaign raised $25.7 million for the month and had $115 million on hand entering May.

Romney raised $11.7 million and had $9.2 million in the bank.
