Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee took in a decent fundraising haul for the month of July raising over $100 million. Figures are not yet available from President Obama’s campaign or the Democratic National Committee so we don’t know how the two have done comparatively.

Report from The Hill:

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign announced Monday that it had raised $101.3 million in July.

The fundraising haul, from joint efforts between Team Romney and the Republican National Committee (RNC), marks the second straight month that they have passed the $100 million mark and is likely to intensify concerns among President Obama’s reelection team that they will be outpaced by the GOP’s fundraising push.

The July efforts leave the Romney campaign in strong shape with three months left until Election Day. The campaign, RNC and state party groups have $185.9 million cash on hand, said a statement touting the war chest.

Romney Victory National Finance Chairman Spencer Zwick and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said the fundraising gains were a sign Romney’s economic message was resonating with voters and highlighted the number of smaller donations they received.

The campaign said that over 94 percent of all donations received last month were for $250 or less. Those 600,627 contributions totaled $25.7 million of the haul.

Notable in this news is the claim that over 94% of these donations were for $250 or less. That leaves a lot of room for the same donors to once again open their checkbooks in the coming months. On a side note, does anyone actually “open a checkbook” to donate to a campaign anymore? More like punch in debit card numbers and press submit.

  1. 94% of these donations were for $250 or less. …………….Like a big company with a thousand workers and the CEO donates on their behalf. We know how the game is played.

  2. List of the 1 Rebublicon and 97 Democrooks THAT voted against Audit the Feds!

    Make sure you NEVER forget these 98 enemies of We, the People — who want a Secretive Private Organization (The Federal Reserve Board) to perpetually print phoney paper promissory “Federal Reserve Notes” (look at the top on any paper money in circulation to see it is JUST A FED NOTE) as REAL DOLLARS!

    The ORIGINAL US Constitution empowers only the Department of Treasury to issue REAL MONEY —US Dollars — and PROHIBITS any Private Organization from doing so upon severe penalty!

    Yet, these anti-American politician-puppets, voted to support the destruction of our Original Constitution by siding with the NEVER Audited in 100 Years Private Entity known as KILL-THE-US-DOLLAR Federal Reserve Criminals, Inc.

    Do your LEGAL best to make sure these creatures NEVER hold Office again!

  3. Hopefully, this presidential election will be decided on the issues and not on how much money can be spent on
    “Attack Ads” by either party!

    Hopefully, the American voters will vote after researching how our country will do with each of the Presidential Candidates agendas!

    • I don’t think it ever has been in the past as evidenced by the 16 trillion dollar debt so why would this election be any different.

    • Ron Paul to WIN — or America to END 2012!
      (there are no other options!)

      All REAL Americans, and ALL People around the world— that believe in Liberty, Peace, Prosperity, Honesty, Truth, Goodness and Self-determination —are for Ron Paul.

      President Paul wants to save our Nation and heal the World, and desires nothing for himself — making him a True Patriot (unlike the megalomaniacs that want The Presidency, so they can get a bigger pie, and engorge themselves further at the people’s expense — marking them as Leeches on the path to suck US dry)!

      Ron Paul has awoken the Sleeping Giant that is We, The People! We are growing in numbers and our voice is no longer distant thunder — but a Roaring Storm that’s approaching and eventually will wipe out the PUPPETEERS that have stolen Our Nation!

      We are the MANY, while the Criminals in Power, that want to control us, are the FEW (and their subhuman squeals are getting weaker)!

  4. It would appear Surfisher likes to make lists. Nazi’s and Communists were also fond of ‘lists.’

    • Watcher, better watch what you print as the Surfisher is a popular man around these parts. You just may not know who you are locking horns with but I’m sure you are about to find out.

  5. JUST LIKE US!!

    Meet the new ticket:
    Born into millions, and his running-mate,
    Married into millions.

  6. How about a real debate on actual topics which candidates have been bashing each other on. Like real budget numbers, rather than pulling it out of their ***** — let’s have a real debate on TRUTHS rather than a topic where they only talk about what they think others want to hear. It’s time for TRUTHS in this election campaign. Really tired of all the negative ads and bashing.

      • Willard is looking more shaky all the time.

        After several weeks of being buffeted from pillar to post, Willard announces Ryan, Ryan becomes such a star that Willard has to beg for attention (like when Bill Clinton said he is, too, relevant).

        Now, after a few more charges and jokes, Willard is complaining that the other kids don’t play fair.

        Now, Willard reminds me of Ed Muskie, crying in the snow, because the Manchester Union Leader was mean to his wife.

        There is still a couple of weeks to drop this loser, and a contested floor fight would just be the drama and suggestion of democracy that the American public would eat up.
