Democratic Party organizers say the campaign of Barack Obama is five million dollars richer this morning. The boost comes from a fund-raiser for the presidential candidate in the financial district of Boston last night.

About 850 Obama backers turned out to celebrate his 47th birthday just three weeks before the party's convention.
