(Newser) – President Obama and the Democratic National Committee raised a combined $71 million in June, the Obama campaign announced today, an amount that would sound pretty darn impressive—if Mitt Romney hadn't absolutely blown it out of the water. Romney and the RNC announced an eye-popping $106 million haul today, according to ABC News, confirming earlier reports that it had shattered GOP fundraising records. "We got beat. Handily," the Obama campaign said in an email to supporters, according to Politico, which predicts Obama will be financially outgunned all the way to November.
