The Obama campaign announced in an email to supporters that it had raised $71 million dollars in June; $36 million shy of the $106 million raised by the Romney campaign.
Our fundraising numbers for June are in:
Together with the Democratic National Committee, we raised a total of $71 million from more than 706,000 individual donors.
It was our best month of this election so far.
But we still got beat — and not by a little bit. Romney and Republicans raised more than $106 million, not even including money to pro-Romney super PACs.
If we lose this election, it will be because we didn’t close the gap enough when we had the chance.
Thanks for all you did to make June the best month we’ve had. But we have to keep going.
