With a haul of more than $101.3 million for July, Romney and the Republican National Committee have topped $100 million for the second consecutive month. Obama’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee raised $75 million. Team Romney also outraised Obama in May and June.

Romney’s campaign said that 94.13 percent of the July donations were $250 or less and 600,627 of the contributions were under $250. According to Romney Victory National Finance chairman Spencer Zwick, Democrats and Independents also helped fill the campaign coffers.
