    Out of more than 50,000 donors who gave to other GOP candidates like Gingrich, Santorum and Texas Gov. Rick Perry since the start of the nomination race, fewer than 600 appeared to write checks to Romney in April, the AP's review of Federal Election Commission reports found. Roughly the same number contributed to the Republican National Committee, which is now helping Romney's campaign.

    Obama, $771,000,000.00

    McCain, $239,000,000.00

    Bush, $600,000,000.00 (aprox.)

    Kerry, $543,000,000.00 (aprox.)

    Seems like I remember Bush significantly outraising Gore...

    In 1996, Dole/Kemp raised around 8 million more the Clinton/Gore; in 1992 Clinton raised more than GHWB, but Perot got enough millions, outside his own money, to make up the difference.

    I believe Romney will equal, or outspend, Obama.

    Romney gave a speech in Ohio and 150 people showed up.

    The excitement is building!

    (Reuters) - Restore Our Future, an outside "Super PAC" backing Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, raised $3.9 million in April, less than half the haul it collected in March, the group's financial disclosures showed on Sunday.

    But the "super" political action committee still emerged with $8.2 million in cash on hand at the end of last month - more than it did in March - after spending $2.9 million, according to the filing with the Federal Election Commission.

    In March, the deep-pocketed Super PAC brought in $8.7 million and had $6.5 million left in cash on hand.
