In an email to supporters, the Obama campaign announces that it has raised a combined $71 million in June with the DNC and various state parties.
Excerpts from Chief Operating Officer Ann Marie Habershaw’s email:
Good news first: June was our best fundraising month yet. We exceeded expectations — more than 706,000 people like you stepped up and pitched in for a grand total of $71 million raised for this campaign and the Democratic Party.
Bad news? We still got beat. Handily. Romney and the RNC pulled in a whopping $106 million.
To recap, that’s a $35 million gap between Mitt Romney and Obama in June — and a sign that the Obama campaign may continue to be outraised all the way until November.
