That’s how much President Barack Obama, Republican Mitt Romney and five groups active in the presidential election raised from Jan. 1, 2011 through Nov. 26, 2012.

Obama and two Democratic groups together raised $1.10 billion, compared with $1.13 billion raised by Republican presidential nominee Romney and three allied groups, according to documents filed last week with the Federal Election Commission that underscored the robustness and parity of the fundraising.

The Democratic tally includes $733 million from Obama’s campaign, $289 million from the Democratic National Committee and $79 million from Priorities USA Action, a super-political action committee run by former Obama White House aides.

The Republican total includes $479 million from Romney’s campaign, $381 million from the Republican National Committee, $154 million from the Restore Our Future, pro-Romney super-PAC, and $117 million from American Crossroads, a super-PAC that also aided Republican candidates for Congress.
