100 Million Dollar Man: Romney Sets Fundraising Record
ABC News ^

Posted on 07/05/2012 2:05:29 PM PDT by Joe27

Mitt Romney reportedly raised more than $100 million in June, the best fundraising month of his campaign so far.

Politico's Mike Allen first reported the total, which includes contributions to both Romney's campaign and the Romney Victory Fund—a joint account between the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee. A Romney spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

That's two record-breaking months in a row for the Romney team. In May, the presumptive Republican nominee raised nearly $77 million—almost $17 million more than President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. The Obama campaign has not yet announced its June totals.

Mitt Romney is reported to have raised OVER $100 million in the month of June. Combine this with incoming jobs numbers that might be another example of Obama's failure and it looks like this is going to be a tougher race than some thought Obama would get. We always knew we could compete. I didn't vote for Mitt in the primary but I'm behind him now. It'll be interesting to see what Obama posts...I'd predict under $75 million.

Treason from John Roberts may have had a positive financial effect on this political campaign, but it’s still not worth it.

And it's only been a week since Roberts betrayed the working citizens of America.

If Oboma keeps pushing his ObomaTax, Romney is a shoe in (as long as he doesn't roll over and play dead on ObomaTax. It's a reelection killer. The job numbers are taking care of themselves!).

Pushing Obama T-shirt & designer pocketbook sales, asking folks to forego wedding/anniversary/birthday gifts & donate the money to The Won, begging/pleading with donors by phone while on Air Force One ..... the trend is not his friend. :-)

Good. Sauce for the goose! Bury Obama! Give him a taste of his 2008 medicine. He had so much extra cash he sent one million dollars to every democrat senate candidate, resulting in a nine seat gain and a filibuster-proof majority.

There is a lot of cash sitting on the sidelines of this economy, doing nothing but being whittled down by inflation.

It’s no surprise that some of the owners of that cash might spend some to try to get different economic policies in the White House so that they can afford to get back in business with the rest.

When will MR. RomneyCARE refute ROMNEYCARE, admit it
was a mistake, apologize to Gov. Palin, and
promise to be a REAL CONSERVATIVE AND LIE NO MORE?

You know what would be cool?

R-Money should follow Obama to the big cities where he goes and gets 40k checks and leaves and then give a speech in the working class sections of said cities.

For example - I am in NYC. ObaMugabe comes here, stinks up the joint, closes streets, hangs w the girls and wall streeters, etc. Does he ever go to Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Jersey, Yonkers, Mt Vernon? NEVER!

Romney going into Bronx or Brooklyn in the Streets and talking about manufacturing, jobs, etc after Thugbama just left w millions of dollars from people most hate would be epic.

I'd imagine June may have been his peak month. He needs to hold money for now; he's not even officially the nominee.

No matter how much Romney can raise, Obama's the "billion dollar" candidate and has endless free advertising.

Can't he just call himself an independent "anti-0bama"?

There is NOTHING conservative about him anyway and the only reason that can be squeezed out of anyone for wanting him for POTUS is he is NOT 0bama!

We have the worse POTUS ever and with an election coming up fear shouldn't even be an option on the table!

It sure is however and we all at FR know why whether some don't want to accept it or not.

Forking out dough and supporting a "sh!t sandwich" to replace a "sh!t sandwich" just doesn't make enough sense to make one feel comfortable.

It just "ain't" natural.

Well, lets face it. The country is turning against Oboma whether Romney is there or not. MAYBE, and just maybe (Republicans have a history of being spineless idiots), he's sitting back and letting the voters get angrier and angrier with Oboma by themselves - without his input.

Romney is a very bright man. He is a numbers guy and he is building an edge for the push. I think Obama’s people are in shock that they are getting outraised by a challenger. I am getting more and more optimistic about November.

Good point and I agree. The MSM will make of it what they will.

That being said, PRIVATE CITIZEN Romney (who I no love for) on a jet ski is nothing compared to pics of GOVERNOR Dukakis riding in a tank or SENATOR Kerry dressed like a space sperm or POTUS Obama playing golf twice a day.

This is why I don't agree with the anti-Romneys who claim that he will do nothing about Obamacare.

Romney is so boxed in on repeal, as are McConnell and Boehner, that it just wouldn't make sense for them not to follow through.

Well, it’s an old fact that elections are about choosing the lesser of two evils, and nipping the heels of even those you voted for on key issues. You can’t have it really any other way, and anyone who thinks a politician will just give them whatever conservative scraps they want is delusional. At the presidential level, you don’t find genuine conservatives, however, I am personally very sick of the banter about race, and other crap from our current POTUS that frankly hearing someone different wouldn’t be all that bad for another few years. I personally didn’t like Romney, nor did I even like either of the Bushes, for that matter, but at least they weren’t some arrogant stubborn-!@# elitist jerk like Obama has been. Seriously, if anything, the worst thing anyone can do now is tell Obama to be himself on steroids by giving him a second term.

There’s plenty of push, and will be push, even for Romney, and even despite the R behind his name, that will be a given. The only issue is whether or not this election gets the tea partiers to shut up or stay true to their core issues regardless of who is sitting in office. That being said, issues and principles are always, and should always, be far more important than the candidates.

And there is a good reason for it:

Norquist: Obamacare = Obamatax. Re-electing Obama means higher taxes - permanently

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2903258/posts

“And this collection of 20 tax hikes are in addition to the tax increases Mr. Obama’s election would trigger as the Republican tax cuts of 2001 and 2003 lapse. The marriage penalty returns. The per-child tax credit falls from $1,000 to $500. Tax rates increase for all Americans. The death tax jumps up to 55 percent of your life savings over $1 million. The capital gains tax jumps to 23.8 percent. The tax on dividends triples. The cost in Year One of a renewed contract for Mr. Obama: $500 billion. It will be $5 trillion over the next decade.

A vote for Mr. Obama is a vote for more than $5.5 trillion in higher taxes over the next 10 years. A vote for Mitt Romney and a Republican Congress will repeal all 20 of Obamacare’s taxes and extend all the lapsing tax hikes so Congress can reform the tax code without a tax increase.

There is, too, a dime’s worth of difference between the parties - 55 trillion dimes.”
