Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Sunday that he was unsure if the GOP and Romney team could match the record September fundraising haul announced by the Obama campaign.
“I don’t know if we’re going to match it, but it is an impressive number,” said Priebus on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
On Saturday, the Obama campaign announced that their combined efforts with the Democratic National Convention had netted $181 million last month. The total sets a new monthly record for the 2012 campaign, topping the Obama August haul of $114 million. Obama topped Romney’s $111.6 million that month after the GOP challenger bested Obama in the money game for three straight months.
Asked if the campaign was “close” to the September figure, Priebus responded “I can’t tell you that right now. “
