President Barack Obama pulled in $75 million for his re-election campaign in July, but his main rival, Republican Mitt Romney, raised more than $100 million in the same period of time.
The numbers show that Romney has once against outpaced Obama in terms of fundraising for a third straight month.
“Reporting back on last month’s fundraising numbers: In July, 761,000 people donated to raise over $75 million for this campaign. Thank you,” Obama said via his Twitter account. In another tweet, the president said that “201,000 of the people who gave in July were entirely new donors who didn’t give before in this election cycle or in 2008.”
Romney’s campaign finance head Spencer Zwick said on Monday that “the support of a broad spectrum of donors … shows that he has the needed plan to jumpstart our economy and get the country on the right track again,” according to his website.
