As President Barack Obama prepares for Tuesday's night presidential debate at Hofstra University, his campaign is touting a record number of donors.

Obama campaign officials say they've surpassed four million donors, a new record for a presidential bid.

The president has relied on small donors to boost his fundraising totals through the summer and fall.

The campaign raised $181 million in September, its biggest amount so far.

Mitt Romney's campaign has yet to release its fundraising numbers for September.

Romney is back in his home state of Massachusetts after spending time in Ohio, where he prepped for the upcoming debate and attended campaign events.

The former Massachusetts governor accused the president of going easy on China over unfair trade practices.

The Obama campaign fired back, saying Romney opposed efforts to impose tariffs on Chinese-made tires and invested in companies that shipped American jobs to China.

Polls show Obama with a slight lead in Ohio.

No Republican has ever won the White House without taking that state.

Tuesday's debate will be a town hall-style match-up. NY1 will bring the debate live from Hofstra University at 9 p.m., followed by a special half-hour wrap-up show with reaction and analysis.
