Romney nearly matches Obama in April fundraising

Mitt Romney and the RNC raised $40.1 million in April, nearly matching President Obama and the Democrats. After a slow start, because of the competitive primaries, Romney’s campaign is poised to become a fundraising juggernaut.

Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee raised more than $40.1 million in April, the Romney campaign announced Thursday.

That figure nearly matches the $43.6 million President Obama and the Democratic campaign committees brought in last month. In addition, the Romney-RNC figure represents just a half-month of joint fundraising, following the former Massachusetts governor’s effective clinching of the GOP presidential nomination.

Mr. Romney brought in $12.6 million in March, when he was raising money only for his campaign, not the Republican Party, too.
