Report: Romney/RNC Raised $100 Million In August
It looks like the GOP had another successful fundraising month:
Mitt Romney raised $100 million in August, his campaign told bundlers last week in Tampa.
Romney campaign finance director Spencer Zwick revealed the tally during an event with top fundraisers on the sidelines of the Republican National Convention, according to a source who was present.
The Romney campaign did not respond to requests for comment on its August fundraising tally, which it’s likely to release publicly in the coming days.
August would be the third straight month that the three main committees boosting the GOP nominee — Romney for President, Romney Victory and the Republican National Committee — have combined to surpass the century mark.
For May through July, the Republicans have also beaten Obama and the DNC in total fundraising. It looks like August will make it four, and give the GOP quite a heft bank balance heading into the final stretch.
