The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Obama’s signature legislative achievement as a tax, and a massive $500 billion tax at that, has helped the Mitt Romney and RNC to build up their campaign war chest. Within two hours of the court handing down its decision, the campaign reported that it was closing in on half a million dollars in donations. Twenty-four hours later, the Romney campaign reports that its fundraising website has netted a whopping $4.6 million. Donations poured in from more than 47,000 individual donors, powering the campaign to its largest online fundraising total to date.
The Romney campaign also isn’t missing a messaging beat. Today the campaign released a new ad using the angry words of Hillary Clinton to declare “Shame on you, Barack Obama” for the Obama campaign’s misleading attacks on Romney’s successful business career.
