Romney’s Fundraising

Hotline reports that the tally for Romney’s kickoff fundraising call-a-thon will likely exceed $3 million.

UPDATE: Hugh Hewitt says the sum is even more impressive–$6.5 million.

UPDATE II: AP confirms the $6.5 million figure, with details:

BOSTON —Republican Mitt Romney and 400 of his strongest supporters raised over $6.5 million on Monday in a glitzy fundraising blitz aimed not only at financing his fledgling presidential campaign, but also scaring off potential rivals and putting existing ones on notice.

“They’ve come together and blown us away today, and humbled us at the same time,” the beaming former Massachusetts governor said as he clutched the hand of his wife, Ann.

The figure dwarfed the $2 million estimated to have been raised by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and the $1 million raised by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who also have created 2008 exploratory committees.
