Romney campaign cash on hand x 10 = Obama campaign cash on hand

  • $104 million the amount of cash the juggernaut-like Obama campaign had on hand at the end of March
  • $10.1 million the amount of cash the finally-validated Romney campaign had on hand at the end of March source

» But at least Romney has Super PAC backing: While Obama more than doubled Romney’s fundraising total in March — $35 million to $12.6 million — Romney’s stayed competitive with the help of the Super PAC supporting him, Restore Our Future. Other Super PACs are helping too — the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads, which is expected to ratchet up the Obama attack ads, raised $31.2 million in March — and the RNC’s fundraising is back on track after a fairly rough stretch under Michael Steele. One thing Romney hasn’t done this time around is put his own money into the campaign, like he did in 2008 when he threw $40 million in the pot. Think Mitt can prove formidable despite the cash deficit?

Obama’s fundraising prowess stays strong; Mitt’s picking up steam

  • $350M the amount Obama has raised since the beginning of the 2012 campaign last year
  • $127M the amount Obama has raised for himself, the DNC and others since the beginning of 2012
  • $53M the amount Obama raised in March alone, which was a solid month for him source

» Romney’s heating up the fundraising, too: With the primary campaign largely over, Mitt Romney is now working together with the Republican National Committee on fundraising, and they’re starting to pick up steam — the RNC, which has had some fundraising scandals in recent years, raised $13.7 million in March, while Mitt has $72 million in cash as of the end of February. The Mittster is expected to announce his March totals later this week. As you might’ve heard, Mitt’s a tad bullish towards big-ticket donors these days.

Not bad brah: Obama’s campaign war chest gets even bigger

  • $68 million (!!!) raised in the fourth quarter of 2011 by Obama source

» His opponents: Not even close. While the Obama campaign denies trying to raise a bold-sounding $1 billion for his campaign, he is doing quite well on the fundraising front, especially in comparison to next-best Mitt Romney. Mitt scored $24 million in donations in the same period. But not all that money will go straight into the Obama campaign: Roughly $24 million will go to the Democratic National Campaign’s efforts reelect members of Congress and the Senate.

Anyone notice something special about today’s Des Moines Register online front page? Possibly some pressing … ethical issues? Oh yeah … the “Paid for by Obama for America” notes only came AFTER the ads went online.
