Update: $2m was raised for the general. That means that he raised $15m primary  money in Q2 and has $16m in the bank for the primary.

Details coming soon.  This means that he spent $10m, about half of what Romney spent. And raised $4m more than Romney. And has $6m more in the bank.

Oh yeah, and he’s in the top in the polls.

Advantage Rudy.

Here’s the press release:

The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee reported today it has outraised every other Republican campaign and has over $18 million cash on hand.  The campaign raised over $17 million in the second quarter, for both the primary and general election, and ended the quarter with zero debt. 

The second quarter fundraising totals highlighted the Giuliani campaign’s growing momentum and commitment to discipline and efficiency with campaign dollars. 

The campaign both outraised first quarter totals by more than $2 million and doubled the number of individual donors.  Contributions have been received from all fifty states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia. 

“We are thrilled by our fundraising this quarter and are running a strong and efficient campaign.  We are well positioned to win both the primary and the general elections,” said Giuliani Campaign Manager Michael DuHaime, “and we are serious about being good stewards with the money that has been entrusted to us.” 

Deputy Campaign Manager Anne Dunsmore added, “Since joining Team Rudy, I have been increasingly encouraged by the response to Rudy’s message across the country.  That strong support translates into an increase in the number of events, donors and dollars which will allow us not only to compete and win the primary, but to win the general election.”

“The campaign raised over $17 million in the second quarter, for both the primary and general election”

I think Romney has only raised for the Primary. So the advantage may not be as much as you present.

Is this an anyone but Romney for GOP site?

Rudy will never, ever be the nominee of the Republican Party. Never.

And he only raised a million more when you compare apples to apples.

True. True. But as I pointed out, Romney raised $6m less than last quarter whereas Rudy went up slightly.

I count that as forward motion for one and backward motion for the other.

You’re right.

Congratulations Rudy on a good haul.
