Obama campaign: Romney fundraising edge means ‘we’re in trouble’
President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign warned supporters in an email plea for cash on Monday that Mitt Romney’s vast fundraising edge means “we’re in trouble” with scarcely three months to go before Election Day.
“We got beat three months in a row,” the campaign said in the unsigned message. “If we don’t step it up, we’re in trouble.”
The appeal came hours after the two sides released their July fundraising totals, revealing that Romney and the Republican Party scooped up $101 million against the $75 million hauled in by Obama and the Democrats.
“Can we win if we’re outspent? YES, but we’ve got to close that gap as much as we can,” the president’s campaign said in the message, which painted casino mogul Sheldon Adelson as a villain to be defeated.
