Mitt Romney, the Romney Victory Fund and the Republican National Committee raised more than $100 million in June, according to Mike Allen of Politico, who tweeted:
siren: @MittRomney campaign obliterates fundraising goals, raises over $100m in JUNE, best month so far (record: Obama raised $150m in 9/08)
The figure is a substantial jump from last month's, $76.8 million, which was a major fundraising haul for the Romney campaign and the RNC.
UPDATE: 5:13 p.m. -- Rick Wiley, the RNC's political director, confirmed the report over Twitter, taunting President Barack Obama's campaign manager Jim Messina and Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod with the following tweet:
.@messina2012, check this out bro, we raised north of $100 million in June. I'm assuming u & Axe will need beers 2night bro
Obama warned his supporters in an email last month that he would be the first president in modern history to be outspent in his reelection campaign. "We can be outspent and still win," the email read. "But we can't be outspent 10 to 1, and still win."
