Via the AP. Significantly less than the $20.6 million he raised last quarter. His cash on hand remains at $12 million, which is where it was three months ago. We’re still waiting for Giuliani, but this reinforces the fact that Democrats have opened up a massive early fundraising advantage over Republicans. It also goes along with the spin that McCain campaign manager Terry Nelson offered yesterday, that this is a rough cycle for the GOP. Suddenly, McCain’s $11.2 million doesn’t look so bad. (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.”
