Romney Has Huge Cash Advantage

Those days when President Obama was a fundraising powerhouse must seem like a long time ago now. The president and the Democratic National Committee raised $75 million in July, significantly less than the $91 million it spent and also significantly less than the $101 million his challenger, Mitt Romney, and the Republican National Committee raised in the same month, according to campaign finance filings released Monday. Even worse for Obama: the RNC reported having some $62 million more in the bank, with $186 million cash on hand compared with $124 million for the Democrats. But it turns out Romney isn’t completely silent on the Chick-fil-A controversy: according to the campaign filings, his team spent $500 at a Chick-fil-A in Atlanta last month.
