Romney outraises Obama for third straight month

← return to Inside Politics

Mitt Romney raised $101.3 million in July, his campaign announced Monday, besting President Obama’s total of slightly more than $75 million and marking the third consecutive month the Republican challenger has brought in more money than Mr. Obama.

Mr. Romney’s haul reflects the total of the Romney for President, Romney Victory and Republican National Committee efforts, while Mr. Obama’s $75 million came from his re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

More than 94 percent of Mr. Romney’s donations in the month — 600,627 — were of $250 or less, though those contributions totaled approximately $25.7 million, approximately one-fourth of the entire haul.

Meanwhile, 98 percent of Mr. Obama’s total came from small donors who gave $250 or less.

In June, Mr. Romney’s combined efforts also hit triple digits, beating Mr. Obama’s combined efforts by $35 million, $106 million to $71 million.
