Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee raised $101.3 million in July, turning in another big month of financial strength for their battle to defeat President Barack Obama on November 6.
In addition to the July numbers, the Romney campaign also planned to announce on Monday that Romney, the Republican National Committee and state party participants have $185.9 million cash on hand.
(...) Romney finance chief Spencer Zwick said donations have come from a broad spectrum of people including Republicans, independents and Democrats.
"We are well on track to raise the money to be successful in November," he said.
While big donors have powered much of the Republicans' fund-raising numbers, the Romney campaign said 94 percent of all donations received in July were for $250 or less.
Segundo mes consecutivo recaudando más de 100 millones de dólares. Es algo sin precedentes en el periodo pre-convenciones. Solo Obama había logrado enlazar dos meses de más de 100 millones en recaudación, pero fue en la recta final (septiembre y octubre) de la campaña de 2008, cuando ya era el favorito indiscutible.
