McCain fund raising on the rise

Yahoo News reports:

[Senator] McCain had $27 million in the bank at the end of June, and the Republican National Committee had nearly $68 million in the bank to help support the Arizona senator in the final push to the November 4 presidential election against Obama.

The combined fundraising allowed McCain to gain an edge over Obama in spending on television advertisements in battleground states in the last month, McCain campaign manager Rick Davis said.

Things are not looking so rosy for democrat Barak H. Obama, as Hot Air points out.

Barack Obama has yet to announce his June numbers. Since peaking in February, his numbers have declined 20% or more each successive month, and in May trailed McCain slightly in fundraising. If he drops below his May numbers in June, he may have seriously miscalculated the decision to eschew public financing.
