Obama And Romney Raised Over $2 Billion
The 2012 Presidential election hit a milestone:
The most expensive election in the history of expensive elections passed a major milestone Thursday evening: the cost of the election was revealed to be more than $2 billion dollars. Campaign finance forms released Thursday evening showed the combined fundraising of the Romney and Obama campaigns brought the election over the top of the mark. That is one killer check to cover. It’s unclear how much, exactly, each campaign raised, but we knew Obama hit the more-than-$1 billion mark at the end of October.
Romney eventually passed the mark too, thanks to a little help from his super mega rich friends. The Romney campaign had a surge of $86 million raised between October 18 and November 26, Politicoreports.
Anyone want to go for $4 billion next time?
