Looks like R$'s bounce from becoming the presumptive nominee has faded. For the month of June, the Obama Campaign outraised Romney $46,000,000 to $33,000,000.
Obama campaign raises $46M in June; Romney takes in $33M
Mitt Romney's campaign raised $33 million in June, according to its Federal Election Commission filing on Friday, accounting for about a third of the $106 million Republicans had boasted raising last month.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee's haul was his largest monthly total to date, but fell well short of the $46 million raised by President Obama's campaign during the same period.
Two weeks ago, the Romney campaign boasted its Victory Committee -- a combination of the campaign, the Republican National Committee and state committees -- had raised $106 million in June. Today's finance report reflects the likelihood that this total was boosted by a large number of high-dollar contributions to Romney and his allies versus a larger number of small-dollar donations that are seen as indicative of grassroots support.
For the month of June, the Obama campaign reported receipts of almost $46 million in June, making up well over half of the $71 million it had previously announced raising jointly with the Democratic National Committee.
According to FEC.org, the largest contribution class for Obama is $200.00 and under while R$ is rolling in dough from the fat cats with the largest group of donations being in the $2,000 and up range.
That leaves the Obama's Reelection Campaign with over $109,000,000 on hand while Romney's has about $17,000,000.
