Obama, Mitt Romney Fundraising Reports Provide Bright Spots For Both Campaigns
A strong fundraising month in September for both President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney gave both campaigns and their allied committees something to smile about as they entered the final month of the campaign.
For Romney -- his campaign, the Republican National Committee (RNC) and Romney Victory-- entered October with a big cash on-hand advantage just in time to jump after the candidate's dominant first debate performance. The Obama team -- his campaign, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and theObama Victory Fund-- can look positively at both its fundraising and spending dominance over Romney and his allies. The team also can be assured that Obama and his team of consultants have more direct control over the money raised than Romney and his top advisers have over their money.
