CAMPAIGN 2012

Obama's Cash-on-Hand Dwarfs Romney's

Mitt Romney’s campaign on Thursday released more February financing numbers, including the fact that it had nearly $7.3 million cash on hand – more than 10 times less than the $75.9 million that President Obama’s reelection team reported at the end of January.

Although Romney has received more high-dollar contributions than other Republican candidates, the campaign said 83 percent of its contributions were $250 or less. Romney has included a pitch for small donations in his recent stump speeches.

 

The campaign -- which said on Wednesday that it took in $11.5 million in February -- said it has raised about $75 million total in the last 11 months. Obama's campaign reported raising more than $136 million as of the end of January.
