Romney Out Raises Obama By $35 Million
There was a fundraising gap in the Presidential race this past month, but it’s not the one you might have thought:
The Romney campaign announces one of the best single-month money hauls in presidential campaign history: $106.1 million for Romney for President, the Republican National Committee, and the Romney Victory fund that the two organizations share.
The Obama campaign, with the same triparite fundraising set-up, announcing $71 million in June, and doing it with the email equivalent of a hangdog expression: “We’ve got some good news and some bad news.”
Mostly bad! Four Junes ago, when John McCain was the Republican nominee-to-be, he and the RNC raised only $48 million. Obama and the DNC? $74 million. So they’re actually $3 million down from this time in the last campaign, and the Republicans are doubling that performance.
So, this is going to be a far different election than 2008, quite obviously
