Say what you want about Mitt Romney's strength as a candidate, but the presumptive Republican presidential nominee can clearly raise money with the best of them.
Romney for President, Romney Victory and the Republican National Committee confirmed today an impressive fundraising total of $106.1 million in June. The Romney campaign and the RNC together have roughly $160 million cash on hand.
Reince Priebus, chairman of the RNC, trumpeted June's windfall as a harbinger of things to come for Romney and the GOP in a Monday press release:
Our June fundraising is a sign that voters are fed up with President Obama’s failure to fix our economy and want a change of direction. While President Obama thinks that the private sector is ‘doing fine,’ millions of Americans are struggling to find work, pay their bills and stay in their homes.
President Obama is clearly in over his head and Americans deserve better. Mitt Romney will fix our economy, repeal Obamacare, and get spending under control – that is why he is receiving such strong support from voters across the country.
