McCain Raises $22 Million in June

With the HuffPo story that Obama's fundraising is going slower than expected, Obama may have made a colossal mistake in turning down public funding. -Patrick

John McCain raised $22 million during the month of June, his campaign announced today. He reportedly has nearly $27 million in the bank as of the last of the month.

According to Mark Halperin, the COH total of the RNC and Team McCain is ~$95 million. Team McCain has outspent Team Obama on advertising by 3:1 over the past 2 months.

No word yet on Obama's figures, but they had been petering down (as has been noted on TNR several times) over the past few months.

Rick Davis of Team McCain said the COH total was "more than twice what Obama and the DNC had".
