Romney Raises a Quick $4.2 Million After Obama Tax Ruling

Posted: Jun 29, 2012 8:23 AM

Mitt Romney just keeps raking in the cash as a result of yesterday's Obama Tax ruling from the Supreme Court. Team Romney has taken in $4.2 million in the past 24 hours.



In response to the ruling yesterday, Romney said he would repeal the entire bill on his first day in office should he be elected president.

The cash roll in comes just days after President Obama sent an email with the subject line, "I will be outspent."

Friend --

I will be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, if things continue as they have so far.

I'm not just talking about the super PACs and anonymous outside groups -- I'm talking about the Romney campaign itself. Those outside groups just add even more to the underlying problem.

The Romney campaign raises more than we do, and the math isn't hard to understand: Through the primaries, we raised almost three-quarters of our money from donors giving less than $1,000, while Mitt Romney's campaign raised more than three-quarters of its money from individuals giving $1,000 or more.

And, again, that's not including the massive outside spending by super PACs and front groups funneling up to an additional billion dollars into ads trashing me, you, and everything we believe in.

We can be outspent and still win -- but we can't be outspent 10 to 1 and still win.

More than 2.2 million Americans have already chipped in for us, and I'm so grateful for it. As we face this week's fundraising deadline, please donate $3 or more today.

Every donation you make today automatically enters you to join Michelle and me for one of the last grassroots dinners of this campaign -- today is your last chance to get your name in.

These dinners represent how we do things differently. My opponent spent this past weekend at a secretive retreat for the biggest donors to both his campaign and the super PACs that support him.

I've got other responsibilities I'm attending to.

Donate today to stand for our kind of politics:

Thank you,


His wife Michelle also chimed in.

Friend --

Right now, Barack is on track to be the first president in living memory to be outspent in his re-election campaign.

I'm not willing to let that happen. Are you?

Get Barack's back now:
