(Though it’s hard to spin McCain’s $2 million cash on hand number).
UPDATE: According to Jonathan Martin, Romney also contributed $6.5 million of his own money to reach over $20 million for the quarter. Coupled with the $2.35 he kicked in during the first quarter, that means Romney has now thrown in about $9 million of his own money. In January, he said self-funding would be “akin to a nightmare.”
