President Barack Obama’s nonprofit advocacy group, Organizing for Action, has raised significantly more money in its second quarter of existence, but only 17 Oklahomans have contributed more than $250 each in both quarters, according to data collected by the nonprofit Sunlight Foundation.

Organizing for Action is a 501(c)(4) advocacy group that is an offshoot of the president’s campaign committee, Obama for America, and brought in $8.2 million in the second quarter, compared with $4.8 million between January and March, the Sunlight Foundation said.
