Mitt Romney and the Republican National Committee outraised President Obama and the Democratic National Committee by nearly $17 million in May, taking in $76.8 million compared to Obama’s $60 million.
The RNC tweeted the fundraising take this morning.
The news is a sure sign that for Republicans, 2008 is finally history. That is, the days when the Obama money juggernaut dwarfed Republican fundraising efforts are not going to return.
In fact, with Republican Super PACs far outraising their Democratic rivals and Obama’s fundraising trailing his campaign’s goals, the president may find himself at something of a disadvantage when it comes to political spending.
