Restore Our Future, a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, raised $20 million in June, the Washington Post reports.
To put that amount in context, the top five political outside groups supporting Democrats recently announced they raised a combined $25 million last quarter. Restore Our Future's Democratic counterpart, the Barack Obama-supporting Priorities Action USA, raised just $6 million in June.
From Aaron Blake of the Post:
The top super PAC supporting Mitt Romney set a new standard for fundraising by a super PAC in June, collecting $20 million, a PAC aide told The Fix.
Restore Our Future's unprecedented total is four times what the super PAC raised in May and more than three times what the top super PAC supporting President Obama raised in the same month. (That super PAC, Priorities USA Action, also set a personal best in June with $6 million raised.)
With the latest haul, Restore Our Future has raised more than $80 million this election cycle.
