Seeking to downplay the importance of fundraising in the presidential campaign, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Sunday called President Obama's September fundraising haul "impressive" and said he doesn't know if Romney and the RNC will match it. 

“I think we all understand this race isn’t going to come down to money,” Priebus said on CNN's "State of The Union," adding, “This is going to come down to work on the ground.”

Obama and the Democratic National Committee raised $181 million in September, a near-record haul and a significant uptick from August, when the president and DNC hauled in $114 million.
