Democratic Donors Awaken as Romney Seeks New Cash

Politico: "Mitt Romney was expected to use a billionaire-fueled fundraising juggernaut to crush President Barack Obama's once vaunted small-donor army. But things haven't gone according to plan."

"Headed into the home stretch of the 2012 presidential race, it is Obama who looks to have an edge, thanks to an awakening donor base, aggressive summer spending on ads and ground game, and a Romney hoarding strategy that left him with plenty of cash in the bank, but not much to show for it."

New York Times: "Mitt Romney entered the final months of the presidential campaign with a cash balance of just $35 million, racing to find new large donors and rally low-dollar contributors in August even while he raised tens of millions of dollars for the Republican Party."
