Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney enjoyed a record surge in his campaign donations in September,raising USD 170.4 million and now has more than USD 191 million cash on hand ahead of the November 6 presidential elections.
The Obama Campaign had raised some USD 181 million over the same period. Romney Campaign and the Republican National Convention has raised more than USD 700 million this election cycle.
“Americans can’t afford four more years like the last four. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are offering voters a vision for our country that will grow the economy,increase incomes,and bring relief to the middle class,” said the Romney Victory National Finance Chairman Spencer Zwick.
According to a fact sheet issued by the Romney Campaign,93.1 percent of all donations received in September were USD 250 or less.
As many as USD 43.15 million were raised by donations under USD 250; and 1,011,773 donations received were under USD 250.
“President Obama has demonstrated that he can¿t defend his record of four years of failure,” said Republican National Convention Chairman Reince Priebus.
“Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have a much different vision than President Obama’s policies of larger government,a stagnant economy,and more government dependence. They are offering voters a pro-growth plan that will finally get our country on the right track again. It is why the Romney-Ryan ticket is seeing such tremendous support and it is why we will win in November,” he said.
