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 Funda 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 millionalmost $17 million more than President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. The Obama campaign has not yet announced its June totals.

Treason from John Roberts may have had a positive financial effect on this political campaign, but it’s still not worth it.
I worry how much $ is from NWO friendly orgs...
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!).
I’ll enjoy watching Obamugabe getting carpet bombed.
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. :-)
Oh! 0 made more he just announced it yesterday or the day before or....that’s why they’ve cancelled more events at his coronation.....Tagline. Lying then or now....
.BTW Don’t believe a single thing he says....particularly regarding money.
Ill enjoy watching Obamugabe getting carpet bombed.
No that’s entertainment!!!!
R-Money is great for fundraising - but the last two weeks he seems to have lost a bunch of steam.
Get of the damn Jet Ski and into the streets Mitt!
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.
November is coming.
I am hoping Obama’s “billion dollar” campaign projections are just another lie.
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.
Mr. RomneyCARE is all about MONEY, and defending HIMSELF
by his surrogates.
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?
I wonder how long 0bama will let it go before he cracks and invokes martial law and follows up with the attempted repeal of the 22nd?
The one thing hanging over Romney’s head if he is elected will be the promise to repeal Obamacare. If he doesn’t do it, he will be a one term president.
All the money in the world won’t buy Romney any love. Most of his own supporters can’t even stand him.
Not to worry...I got $25 in for June and another $25 on the way....just recycling some gobmint benes.
NEVER, he wouldn't even know how!
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.
There is a much higher likelihood of Obama becoming a conservative Roman Catholic.
That doesn't bode well for conservatism this election cycle.
No matter how much Romney can raise, Obama's the "billion dollar" candidate and has endless free advertising.
It doesn’t bode well for the country, when “conservatives,” out of abject fear, abandon everything they say the believe in.
But 0bama will be getting ILLEGAL foreign funding that no one will ever know about.. Especially from the ‘Arab Spring’ crowd. Guaranteed.
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!
Of course you can have Obama back, too..
If he is reelected ..NO restraints...and no hope at all for Obamacare being overturned.
Justice Roberts handed Romney a golden ticket worth $100 million this last month.
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.
The Primaries are OVER.
We have TWO candidates for Nov.
Stop stumping for ‘bummer
You are SO TRANSPARENT
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.
"If it ain't broke - don't fix it."
Absolutely. And the trouble is — these shills are so doggone BORING!! They are tedious to read, filled with cliches and childishness, and tiresome.
Until these ABR types present a credible and realistic plan to oust the Obamunist, the Destroyer, The Radical Transformer, then they are nothing but a broken record.
Romney, let the advertising carpet bombing begin and start reserving television time now. Let Obama sense fear.
"Read my lips."
And you know what - if romney fails at that - it will be easier to primary him.
"That doesn't bode well for conservatism this election cycle.
That ship sailed when the Repiblicans nominated Myth. We're screwed.

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.
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.
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.
Kickin’ the door! Wow... I never heard the story about this bit from the media - or here on FR. Can you enlighten me?
He will never be re-elected if it is not repealed (assuming he is elected to begin with).
Mr. RomneyCARE is not yet the CAndidate.
Mr. RomneyCARE has not yet gone AGAINST ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE.
Want to know why? Mr. ROMNEYCARE SUPPORTS DEATH PANELS.
Mr. RomneyCARE has boxed America by cheating
and backstabbing his way to a fake 30% of the GOP.
That is not enuf, except to give Obama another 4 years.
RomneyBOTs all secretly want Obama for another 4 years.
Mr. RomneyCARE should pull out ... NOW.
And there is a good reason for it:
Norquist: Obamacare = Obamatax. Re-electing Obama means higher taxes - permanently
“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.”
Dude, the primaries are OVER! You are now SHOOTING AT THE WRONG SIDE! Take aim on the other side. If not, you are doing nothing but the work of the enemy. Get your head straight!
