    Confirmed – Romney and RNC pulled in $106 million in June

    Confirmed – Romney and RNC pulled in $106 million in June

    The speculation is over, via L.A. Times:

    Mitt Romney pulled in a blockbuster fundraising haul in June, collecting $106.1 million for his campaign and the Republican Party, his campaign announced today.

    The total marks Romney’s best fundraising month yet, as the former Massachusetts governor continues to capitalize on the large donations he can now collect through joint fundraising with the Republican National Committee and other affiliated groups.

    The June haul was also boosted by the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Obama’s healthcare law; officials claimed $4.6 million — mostly in small donations — came into the joint fundraising effort in the 24 hours following the decision….

    The campaign says it, along with the RNC, has approximately $160 million in the bank. Of the $106 million collected last month, $22.3 million was raised in increments of less than $250, it said.

    The whining and complaining from Team Obama already has started, as witnessed in the latest fundraising letter:

    Friend –

    Election Day will be here in less than four months. And we’re facing a big problem right now that could directly affect the outcome that day.

    The Romney campaign and the Republicans raised $100 million in the month of June alone. That is a massive sum.

    Just wait until they start spending all that money in full force in key states we need to win.

    This from the candidate who in 2008 broke with tradition to reject public financing because he could raise so much more outside the public financing system, and who bragged how he would raise $1 billion this time around.  It’s not happening for him, not even close.

    I don’t think this is a one-off for Romney.  There are plenty of people who have not contributed yet, including yours truly.

    Obama can’t buy this election.  He’ll have to win it the old-fashioned way — with the help of the mainstream media.


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.

    I kicked in a few bucks too. Here in California I welcome the electoral wave that sweeps diabolical progressives from office. (Vote out a Democrat in California? Sure and I remind you that despair is a sin.) Our progressive betters impose by means other than the ballot box their sins of commission and omission. Your tenure at the levers of power awaits November and transition in January. I thank Hugh Hewitt for the encouragement, “If it isn’t close, they can’t cheat.”
    Thanks, Professor.

    30 more than Obama but I’m never sure if campaign money is transposable with party donations

    It may or may not be good timing for Romney to respond
    to Obama’s heavy artillery tactics right now.

    However, those who say Romney is too passive have forgotten the beatings Perry, Gingrich, etc. took from him during the primary. The only one not scarred was Bauchmann who was fawning over Mitt during the whole campaign.

      You nailed it. Good timing and threat assessment beats out carpet bombing every time.

      Romney has demonstrated the ability to change the picture in many primary fights by applying assets in a timely manner. It might not be pretty, but it works.

      Romney is no McCain or Dole…

    June was our best fundraising month yet. We exceeded expectations — more than 706,000 people like you stepped up and pitched in for a grand total of $71 million raised for this campaign and the Democratic Party.

    Don’t get cocky kid

    My take on this is that Romney is something rare in the political arena: he’s a gentleman. He’ll take the gloves off if he absolutely has to,

    Go ask the people of Fla about that –
    His attack ads against Gingrich were horrific.

    So where is he now? He should be 10 points ahead of Obama – “Mitt can afford to sit back and let the Obamanation bloviate ad infinitum.” – LIKE HELL.

    Soon I will give into the fear we will have nominated another McCain.
