Romney reports raising $137.1 million in August
BOSTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's campaign is reporting it raised US$111 million (S$137.1 million) in August to fund his challenge of President Barack Obama.
It's the third straight month the former Massachusetts governor has raised more than US$100 million. The figure represents his best one-month fundraising total.
Mr Obama, however, edged out Mr Romney, raising US$114 million toward his re-election campaign. However, Mr Romney has socked away more money for the general election campaign.
Mr Obama is reversing a three-month trend at the time he needs it most, having spent heavily over the summer on advertising in an attempt to keep Mr Romney at bay.
