President Obama’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised $71 million in June, compared to the $106.1 million raised by Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee during the same period.
The Obama campaign announced its fundraising numbers in an email to donors on Monday.
“June was our best fundraising month yet,” a campaign official wrote. “We exceeded expectations — more than 706,000 people like you stepped up and pitched in for a grand total of $71 million raised for this campaign and the Democratic Party.”
But, the official noted, “We still got beat. Handily. Romney and the RNC pulled in a whopping $106 million.”
