Romney’s fund-raising outpaces president’s
Obama’s aides use news to press donors
In his second month as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney outraised President Obama by almost 30 percent, raking in $76.8 million in May. The money will be shared among the Romney campaign and affiliated GOP committees. The Obama campaign will split a $60 million haul with Democratic committees. Romney’s May total is almost double the $40.1 million he raised in April, when he came within $3.5 million of matching Obama.
