The pro-Barack Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action is still struggling to keep up with GOP super PACs preparing to unleash millions of dollars in independent advertisements.
Priorities USA Action
raised $1.6 million in April, according to federal records released late

$59,000 the group raised in January.
The group raked in $3 million less than the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC
