June Romney Donors—Look Like Me
June was a big month for Mitt Romney. His fundraising efforts brought in over $100Million to the campaign. Maybe not record breaking; this haul is more than $35Million more than Barack Obama for the same month.
Obama campaign manager Jim Messina sent out an anxious and apparently error filled email begging for donors. He wrote, “Through the primaries, more than three-quarters of our donations were from people giving less than $1,000. Meanwhile, in that same period, Mitt Romney’s campaign raised three-quarters of its money from people giving $1,000 or more.”
However, according to the Romney website there is a clear demonstration that support for the presumptive GOP candidate is coming primarily from small donations.
From the Romney Website July 9, 2012:
94% of all donations received in June were under $250
$22.3 million raised in June by donations under $250
536,729 donations received were under $250
While the left wing will continue to bash Romney as a Richie Rich and Friends the media must eventually report the truth; that Romney supporters come from all walks of life and that many of them look just like me.
