Jonathan Martin has the details. That’s a very big number.
Romney’s number is a true measure of fundraising prowess for the primaries since all of the $23 million if for the primary campaign.. We still can’t evlauate Hillary’s $26 million or Rudy’s $15 million until we see how those numbers are split between the primary and general campaign funds as the latter cannot be used prior to the general election.
I discussed the fundraising resources available to Romney in A Mormon In The White House, so I thought he’d have a good first quarter. I wasn’t expecting this good of a quarter though. Nobody was, in fact.
