Today was a huge day for the Romney campaign and demonstrated that Mitt has what it takes to run a sustainable, national campaign. Why do these numbers matter so much? Here’s a detail from the AP story:
He wants to emerge from the fundraising quarter that ends June 30 having far outraised his rivals, and displaying financial fortitude in hopes that Republicans will choose him to challenge President Barack Obama. The Democrat shattered fundraising records in 2008 and could raise as much as $1 billion for his re-election campaign.
One billion dollars. That’s Barack Obama’s target. Can Mitt match that number? We shall see, but today was a good start.
