WASHINGTON (AP) - The Associated Press has learned that Mitt Romney's presidential campaign has raised at least $100 million in August for the third consecutive month.
The early numbers, which include money raised by the national Republican Party, will be publicly released next week. They were described by two people familiar with the figures who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to share internal campaign matters.
The disclosure comes as Romney and the GOP have out-raised President Barack Obama's reelection effort in May, June and July, including money collected by the Democratic Party. Obama's advisers are now publicly acknowledging the president will likely be outspent.
