Romney raises over 7 mln dollars on VP pick


10:04, August 15, 2012

WASHINGTON, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Republican presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign announced on Tuesday it had raised 7.4 million U.S. dollars online in three days after the formal announcement of Congressman Paul Ryan joining the ticket.

Paul Ryan, the 42-year-old Wisconsin lawmaker, has appeared to be a fund-raising powerhouse on a whirlwind campaign tour, shortly after he stood first time as Romney's vice presidential running mate last Sunday. Romney's campaign raised 7.4 million dollars via more than 101,000 donations in 72 hours following the announcement, said Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul on Tuesday.

Romney's choice of his running mate has dominated U.S. media coverage with headline news and prime hour coverage ever since the announcement and effectively driven donations.
