Romney Comes Close to Obama With $40.1M In April Fundraising
Matt | On 17, May 2012
President Obama may be the favorite to win the presidential election in November right now. However, Mitt Romney has some strong financial pull to give him a run for his money.
The April campaign fundraising numbers are in for the presumptive GOP nominee. He took in a handsome $40.1 million in campaign funds for the month. President Obama beat him slightly with a $43.6 million haul in April. Romney now has $61.4 million in cash on hand.
Romney has seen a major jump in his fundraising after both Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich nose-dived out of the race in April. Not only has Romney seen more cash coming in, but his poll numbers against President Obama have improved as well. Republicans are at the “we don’t have anyone else to choose” point in the race … so they are supporting Romney.
More money means more resources to hire staff and try to rally voters to pick Romney over Obama. It also means more television, radio, and Internet ads. So, if you’re sick of the spots now, get ready to HATE them by November.
I predict that Romney’s fundraising is only going to strengthen as the campaign goes on.
