Romney's Fundraising Leaps as Candidate Fumbles
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- After another impressive fundraising month, Mitt Romney finds himself exactly where he was before the summer began: second place.
Romney's campaign announced Monday it raised $101.3 million in July, while President Barack Obama's team tweeted it received more than $75 million last month.
"Americans are clearly looking for a change in the White House," said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus. "While President Obama claims that his economic plan 'worked,' the American people know that his policies haven't worked and he has failed to fix our economy."
Yet national polls show Obama ahead of Romney, 47.7% to 44.3% according to an average tally
