Mitt Romney raises $24 million in fourth quarter, ends 2011 with $19 million on hand
Fresh off winning the New Hampshire primary, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney announced Tuesday morning that he raised $24 million in the last three months of 2011.
It’s a significant bump from Romney’s $14 million third quarter and another sign that he is close to locking up the Republican presidential nomination.
Romney has $19 million in cash on hand after raising $56 million over the past year. He’s given no personal donations to his campaign — a marked shift from 2008, when the former venture capitalist poured $40 million into his bid.
All of the money was raised for the primary, not the general election.
