Obama Camp Raised $71 Million in June

President Obama’s campaign announced Monday that it raised a total of $71 million in June. “Good news first: June was our best month yet,” Obama’s chief operating officer, Ann Marie Habershaw, told supporters. “We exceeded expectations—more than 706,000 people like you stepped up and pitched in for a grand total of $71 million raised for this campaign and the Democratic Party.” The bad news, she noted, was that “we still got beat. Handily. Romney and the RNC pulled in a whopping $106 million.”
