Presumptive GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney‘s fundraising juggernaut rolled on in June, setting a Republican fundraising record.
The Romney Victory Fund and the Republican National Committee pulled in more than $100 million for the month. Campaign officials say fundraising has “exceeded all expectations” in New York, Colorado, Michigan, New Jersey and Ohio.
With anger growing in GOP circles over the recent Supreme Court decision on Obama care, the fundraising — which continues to outperform Obama — is expected to increase.
“There is no doubt that Romney is dramatically outpacing both Obama and expectations,” GOP strategist Steve Simmons told Capitol Hill Blue. “He’s doing better in the polls and he’s beating Obama in fundraising.”
Republican strategists feel the Supreme Court decision will break for Romney and energize a base that has — to date — been lukewarm to the nominee.
