TheRomney campaign, along with its Romney Victory fund, raised more than $100 million in June, obliterating the campaign's goal and setting the one-month record for any Republican campaign, according to a GOP official.
Now-President Barack Obama raised $150 million as he was surging in September 2008, the record month for any campaign.
The Romney campaign outraised Obama in May — taking in $77 million, compared with $60 million for the Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
The Romney campaign says much of the June haul came from new donors, with states from coast to coast out-performing their targets.
New York was a gold mine for Romney, and Colorado, Michigan, New Jersey and Ohio all dramatically exceeded expectations.
Para que os hagáis idea de lo brutal que es esta cantidad, y más tratándose de un candidato que se enfrenta a un incumbent: en junio de 2008, Obama recaudó 52 millones y McCain solo 22. En junio de 2004, John Kerry, el último candidato que se enfrentó a un Presidente en ejercicio, recaudó 36 millones.
