We who believe in OPPORTUNITY, the American Dream, and Governor Mitt Romney helped our next President raise a hefty amount of money in July to strengthen his campaign war chest…
It’s the second month in a row Romney has raked in more than $100 million and the third month in a row Romney’s joint committee has raked in more cash than Obama’s joint committee. (Obama’s joint fundraising resulted in $75 million for July.)
No candidate for president has ever had two $100 million months in a single election.
Today, Romney for President, Romney Victory, and the Republican National Committee announced fundraising totals of over $101.3 million in July. The campaign, RNC and state party participants have approximately $185.9 million cash on hand.
Announcing the numbers, Romney Victory National Finance Chairman Spencer Zwick and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said, “Once again we see that for many people, this is more than a campaign, it is a cause.” Zwick went on to say, “We are honored to have the support of a broad spectrum of donors—Independents, Democrats and Republicans—whose support of Governor Romney shows that he has the needed plan to jumpstart our economy and get the country on the right track again. We are well on track to raise the money to be successful in November. If you haven’t given, show your support by joining the group of donors who have shown their commitment to Governor Romney and the Romney Victory effort.”
“Americans are clearly looking for a change in the White House,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. “While President Obama claims that his economic plan ‘worked,’ the American people know that his policies haven’t worked and he has failed to fix our economy. Mitt Romney has a plan that will create jobs, grow the economy, and build a stronger middle class – that is why he is seeing such strong support.”
