(Newser) – Obama supporters have their work cut out for them: In June, pro-Mitt Romney super PAC Restore Our Future raised $20 million, a rep tells the Washington Post. That's a record for any super PAC. Meanwhile, the pro-Obama Priorities USA Action set its own best mark last month—with just $6 million. Restore Our Future's haul quadruples its May takings.

"This record-breaking fundraising effort is a tribute to the hard work of the entrepreneurs, small businesspeople, investors, and concerned citizens who believe America can do better than the Obama economy of the past years," says the group's treasurer. The group has collected a total of $80 million for Romney so far. Meanwhile, Romney's own campaign pulled in far more cash than Obama's in June.
