Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama's re-election campaign released its June fundraising numbers Monday, reporting that it raised $71 million to Republican opponent Mitt Romney's approximately $100 million. The campaign responded with thanks to the more than 706,000 donors who got the campaign to that point but also appealed for more money.
"We still got beat - and not by a little bit," Ann Marie Habershaw, chief operating officer for Obama for America, said in the e-mail. "If we lose this election, it will be because we didn't close the gap enough when we had the chance."FULL STORY
