(Newser) – Mitt Romney had a very good June: His campaign raised more than $100 million in the month to set a Republican fundraising record, reports Mike Allen at Politico. President Obama's camp hasn't released numbers yet, but it's a safe bet that Romney will end up on top for the second straight month. States going above and beyond for Romney included New York, Colorado, Michigan, New Jersey, and Ohio.

Romney reportedly raised about $7 million in one day alone at a pair of events in Michigan, notes CNN. And the ObamaCare ruling inspired nearly 50,000 people to contribute $4.6 million within 24 hours of the decision on June 28. Though the $100 million figure is impressive, it falls short of the $150 million overall record—set in September 2008 by Obama.
