Not to be outdone by the Obama campaign and DNC September haul of $181 million, the Romney campaign and the RNC announced today that they had raised a combined $170 million last month:
Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee together raised $170 million in September, the campaign announced Monday.
Romney for President, Romney Victory and the RNC also said they have a combined $191 million in the bank after their big September haul.
About 93 percent of the donations, or $43 million, of the total amount raised was from donors who gave $250 or less, according to the Romney campaign.
Romney’s fundraising success has continued into October. He has raised more than $27 million online this month, Romney campaign press secretary Andrea Saul tweeted. “1st 2 weeks of Oct, raised over $27mil online in low $’s alone- better than any MONTH so far,”
And, yes, the vast majority of this money will be spent, by both campaigns, over the next 22 days.
