Flexing His Fundraising Muscle

Mitt Romney's campaign flexed its fundraising muscle yesterday in a national "Call-A-Thon" that solicited donations from Romney friends and financial supporters. Romney's camp blew past its stated goal of $1 million by 11am and went on to raise, according to the Salt Lake Tribune, more than $7 million before the day was through. To remain competitive, Romney will need to sustain this fundraising prowess (some estimate he will need to pull in $100 million this year alone), but by any measure this fundraising kick-off was a stunning success that seems to resolve any doubts of whether Romney could contend with John McCain and Rudy Giuliani financially.

Hey... did you know that you can get your own Fundraiser ID for Mitt and get credit for bringing in donations? Mind you there's no "cut" or "percentage" but you do get recognition... AND your help elect Mitt... which IMHO is a good thing.
