Posted on 10/15/2012 12:39:35 PM PDT by Perdogg
As Mitt Romney's campaign announced on Monday that it raised a personal-best $170 million in September, his top donors are gathering at Manhattans Waldorf Astoria hotel for a three-day retreat at which they will attend strategy sessions, rub elbows with Republican luminaries and cheer on their candidate at a debate party featuring comedian Dennis Miller.
The $170 million figure is almost as much as the near-record $181 million that President Obama raised last month.

And I imagine they were legit contributions.
over to you, Candy..
small donations from mOrmons on missions abroad. 8-}
Weren’t we told that contributors were shying away from Romney?
I have family members who are mormons. Missionaries don’t get any pay from the church. I really doubt they would have any money to donate.
Romney has $191 million cash on hand.
The big difference is that Romney’s donors are not Muslims from Middle Eastern countries.
Do you know how much Obama has?
That is important because Republicans get one shot to sink the Dem. If they fire too early, the press figures out how to spin and mitigate the damage. So they have to balance between not opening fire too late when it won't matter any more vs. opening fire too early when the damage can be cleaned up by the press. The next several weeks are going to be total war and unlike McCain, Romney is well prepared for it.
We’ve been told a lot of BS from Pravda media.
And Romney didn't even have to resort to illegal overseas donations.
The election will close as a battle of ideas. There is no amount of spending by the Marxist that can exceed that of Romney.
I doubt that’s true, but even if it is, I’d take mormon money over muslim money any day of the week.
I see alot more Romney ads but I would like to see more(south florida)
0bama and his buddies the enemedia, soros-et-al, and bernanke have unlimited funds. Their solicitations for $3 or $5 are for show.
Per this link:
Barry has $88 million on hand, while Romney has $50 million....but the RNC has $70 million vs DNC only has $7 million.
Barry isn’t allocating any of his haul to the DNC, while Romney is....and this money can be spent on the Romney campaign, as well as the other races.
And then there’s the PACS, in which right leaning pacs lead.
So who knows...all I know is Barry will not be able to outspend Romney 3:1 like McCain...remember McCain closing up state offices towards the end, while Barry bought a 30 minute infomercial on all the major networks with his spare dough?
And, he is SCREWING the DNC. First he left the Dem senators out to dry, with an unpopular Obamacare vote, then he promises to get them re-elected with his personality, then he refuses to contribute to the DNC. I thought I didn’t like him...imagine what a Dem Senator thinks about him.
“Weve been told a lot of BS from Pravda media.”
Watch your words, comrade! Don’t be labeled a “wrecker.” You need to get back to the collective and exceed your norm! It is the new “economic patriotism!”
That was my thought exactly: at least Romney/Ryan donations are legitimate.
And I can hardly wait to see the October numbers!
"Just a few bumps in the road....."
Annnnd, he's already bought the media saturation.
This is good news. September was Romney’s worst month, from where you had GOPers openly running to leftwing press to count Romney out, non-stop polling showing Romney out, and then comes the debate.
They apparently had a huge donation surge after the debate too.
September was Romney’s worst month as far as perceived “gaffes”, as well as polls. Yet he had his BEST fundraising month. Really good news.
We made 2 donations in September and both required those security codes. The Romney campaign is very quick to comply with the law, acknowledge the donation and THEN send a thank you note-which is more than I hear some people get from that OTHER campaign.
The last weeks will be a campaign the likes of which no one has seen before.
Are any of the Dem senators running from Obama in their contests? I know several opted out of attending the DNC convention, but haven’t had any recent information on those candidates who are distancing themselves from The One.
I don’t really know....I have noticed that I rarely see a local office holder ‘introduce’ him at rallies.
Funny how few rallies he’s had this year. Just can’t attract the crowds of ‘08, so he seems to be focusing on raising money from his millionaire and billionaire friends in the parlors of New York City and San Francisco.
When the Obama figures for Sept were reported last week by KOLO, the Reno ABC affiliate, the anchor clearly said:
Obama AND THE DNC raised $181 Million in September. That is 2 entities-—not just Obama.
Can anyone clear this up?
I think that the $181 million figure does refer to BOTH the DNC & Obama direct, which would then be deliberate to distort Barry’s fundraising versus Mitt’s.
I have never seen that number reported.
What is the unpaid Accounts Payable number for each campaign????
