President Barack Obama is seeing an uptick in fundraising since he announced his shift on gay marriage.

Some Democratic fundraisers say they're seeing renewed interest from gay and lesbian donors who had urged the president to clarify his stance on the divisive social issue.

Obama's campaign has declined to say how much it has collected
since the announcement but some staffers have asked supporters to
give money as a way of expressing their approval.

Following the Obama interview with ABC News, Obama's national
finance director Rufus Gifford said in a posting to the campaign Web site that "if you're proud of our president, this is a great time to make a donation to the campaign."
