In an email to supporters, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina says he’s totally fine with being outraised by Mitt Romney’s campaign.
“Look, no one expects this campaign to keep pace with the Romney money juggernaut. That’s OK by me,” Messina wrote in a fundraising email to supporters. “What we can’t let happen is finding ourselves in October, staring down the final weeks of this campaign without the resources to get our message in front of enough voters.”
“Yesterday, we learned that for the third month in a row, we’ve been outraised by the other side in this race,” Messina wrote. “Now we’re seeing how that plays out: In battleground states across the country, they’re piling on the negative TV advertising.”
The Romney campaign announced Monday that they’d outraised the Obama campaign for the third month straight, by more than $25 million.
