Romney Beats Obama in Fundraising
It looks like Romney’s campaign is going to give Barack Obama and his Chicago-thugs a real run for their money:
(Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Republican groups raised more than $76.8 million in May, his campaign said on Thursday, topping the more than $60 million President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies hauled in.
Romney’s campaign and the Republican National Committee have $107 million in cash on hand, the campaign said. Obama’s cash on hand figure was not immediately available.
“We are encouraged by the financial support from a broad range of voters, said Romney national finance chairman Spencer Swick. “It is clear that people aren’t willing to buy into ‘hope and change’ again. Voters are making an investment because they believe that it will benefit the country.”
The Romney and Republican fundraising numbers were reported hours after Obama and his Democratic allies announced they had hauled in more than $60 million for his re-election campaign in May – a large jump for the president.
