Issues with filling

Hey everyone!  I'm currently working on a logo that requires a shape to have split colors.  When I try to fill the object, it only fills parts of the shape.  I've grouped all of the shape together, but I can't seem to figure out why it's doing this. 

 

Here's what I'm talking about (I've attached both the project, and the original image):

    You are only filling part of the object because grouping does not create a single object, it just keeps objects together. You would need to use Join to make a single path of it.

    Given the half-and-half effect you want, your best bet at this point may be Live Paint. Finish adding the outer circles to your drawing, add a line down the middle and then make a Live Paint object. This will make all the interior parts into areas that can be filled with the paint bucket.
