Romney Raised $170 Million in September

Republican Mitt Romney raised more than $170 million in September, aides said Monday — a record for his campaign but shy of President Barack Obama’s $181 million haul for the same period.

With the latest fundraising figures, the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) plus state party participants now have more than $191 million cash on hand just 22 days before the general election.

Romney and running mate Paul Ryan “are offering voters a vision for our country that will grow the economy, increase incomes and bring relief to the middle class,” Romney finance chairman Spencer Zwick said in a statement.
