Early Presidential Fundraising

Posted in U.S. by Ryan on the February 28th, 2007

ABCnews seems to have missed this Washington Post article when they wrote this article today.

From the ABCnews article:

Some Republicans speculate that Romney, who trails his two rivals badly in national and key state polls, might down the road put in tens of millions of his own personal wealth for his campaign, but for now the competition is over raising money cheek-to-cheek-to-check against the other two.

The Washington Post says:

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney raised $6.5 million for his presidential exploratory committee yesterday, sending a powerful message to his potential opponents about the seriousness of his bid for the Republican nomination.

Granted, it was an isolated incident which was planned ahead…but no one has touched that one day total as far as I know. Romney not only has his own money, the man has serious fundraising power.
