Democratic National Committee
Mitt Romney‘s campaign confirmed this morning that it raised more than $106 million in June, smashing internal expectations and likely destroying President Barack Obama’s campaign money machine for the second month in a row. The $106.1 million total makes June the single biggest fundraising month for Romney since he launched his White House bid. Significantly, the campaign saw a huge uptick in small donations last month as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Obama’s healthcare law, indicating that Romney might be starting to gain ground in grassroots fundraising, an area where he has so far struggled to keep up with the President. The Romney campaign reported Monday morning that 94% of its June donations were $250 or less, accounting for $22.3 million of the June haul.
“This month’s fundraising is a statement from voters that they want a change of direction in Washington. Voters of all stripes – Republicans, Independents, and Democrats – have made it clear that President Obama has not lived up to the promises of his last campaign,” Romney’s finance chairman Spencer Zwick said in a release. “Mitt Romney’s message of restoring economic security and rebuilding our middle class is clearly resonating across the country. In the months to come, these resources will be crucial to highlighting the difference between President Obama’s broken promises and Mitt Romney’s plan to get America on the right track again.”
The campaign’s fundraising total includes money raised by the campaign, the Republican National Committee, and the joint Romney Victory Fund. Combined, the three entities have $160 million cash on hand.
