Romney Raises $100 Million

Mitt Romney’s campaign raised $100 million in June alone. It sounds like a lot of money right? That’s because it is. It doesn’t beat Obama’s record from 2008 of $150, but it shows Romney’s potential to do so in the coming months. It seems ridiculous to spend hundreds of millions just to get elected. Well when everyone is doing it, you have to.

America doesn’t vote on how many millions the candidates give to charity, especially if they don’t know about it. So all the money goes to things like TV time, travel, parties, food, etc. Most of the budget in fact is for TV time. It seems strange that candidates tell us they want economic change in a commercial that alone could have cost a million dollars.
