While Barack Obama had ten times as much in the bank as Mitt Romney did at the end of March, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate outraised the Democrat incumbent in May as the money chase -- like the presidential race in general -- continues to heat up.
On Thursday, the two major parties and their presidential candidates unveiled what they raised in May -- and Romney and the Republicans did better than Obama and the Democrats in the month.
The Romney team and the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced that they had raised almost $77 million in May and had $107 million in the bank. The Obama campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) revealed that they had brought in more than $60 million in May but did not announce how much they had on hand.
“We are encouraged by the financial support from a broad range of voters,” said Spencer Zwick, Romney’s finance chairman, on Thursday. “To them, whether they are Republican, Democrat, independent, a first-time political donor, or a former Obama donor, this is not just a campaign, it's an opportunity for the country. It is clear that people aren't willing to buy into ‘hope and change’ again. Voters are making an investment because they believe that it will benefit the country.”
