Romney Campaign Outraises Obama By $35 Million

(Read the full article here: Romney Campaign Outraises Obama By $35 Million)

Team Romney outraised Team Obama $106 million to $71 million in June, making for the highest fundraising numbers yet of the 2012 campaign.

Obama’s campaign upped its haul by $11 million from last month, but that’s nothing compared to the 50% jump made by Romney’s campaign, which leapt from $77 million. It’s the second straight month that Romney has outraised Obama, and he has just about closed the gap between the two treasuries (Obama, who didn’t have a contested primary, got a head start on his Republican challenger).

Ron Paul’s Expensive Failure

Ron Paul still seems in it for the long haul, but more as a barnacle than a serious candidate. After 29 contests, Paul has only 51 delegates, fewer than 1/10 of those held by frontrunner Romney, and not even within striking distance of third-place Newt Gingrich, a zombie of a candidate.
