Mitt Romney Fundraising: GOP Presidential Hopeful Raises $24 Million During Final 3 Months Of 2011

Posted: Updated:

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney raised $24 million during the last three months of 2011.

Romney's campaign announced the year's final fundraising numbers on Wednesday, a day after he won the New Hampshire primary. It's his best fundraising quarter of the primary campaign so far. The former Massachusetts governor has $19 million to use in upcoming primaries as he looks to become the GOP nominee.

The total means that Romney raised $56 million in 2011. He announced his candidacy in June. Romney, a multimillionaire, didn't make any personal contributions to the campaign. In 2008, he contributed more than $45 million of his own money. The announcement underscores Romney's huge financial advantage over the conservative rivals scrambling to beat him in South Carolina's Jan. 21 primary.
