Pro-Romney super PAC has big fund-raising month

(CNN) - Restore Our Future, a super PAC supportive of Mitt Romney, raised $14.8 million in September, according to its monthly filing with the Federal Election Commission.

The group spent $4.6 million and ended the month with $16.6 million cash in the bank for the final month of 2012 presidential race.

September's cash haul was way up from the previous month, when the group took in $7 million but spent $21.2 million.

The monthly report includes totals before the presidential debates began in early October. Charlie Spies, the group's founder, told CNN's Erin Burnett that their biggest fund-raising day came the day after Romney's widely-praised performance in the first debate on October 3.

In recent weeks, the group has focused its efforts in states in the Upper Midwest, particularly Wisconsin and Michigan.

– CNN Senior Producer Kevin Bohn contributed to this report.

    After discovering blatant voter fraud in Ohio, the authorities there repeatedly contacted Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, for help ... but they never got a response !!!

    Great let the GOP buy the election, so they can appoint more Supreme Court Justices’, so they can make more partisan political rulings that put more money into politics, or rulings that make Grover Happy by adding more to the US on hand weapon count. The major political tactic by any minority party is to DELAY, bring law suits, make them go all the way to the Supreme Court, where if you have a political advantage. then the minority wins (not unlike the filibuster in the Senate allows) thus turning the concept of majority rule and United States Democracy on its ear.

    No the donors are people like me – a mother of three, small business owner who makes $100k/year and want a president who can get our country back to greatness in regards to economy, who can not apologize for our freedoms to other countries, and who can help us build a great country for our kids. Romney is a good man with a good head on his shoulders. Obama is the opposite – an absolute disgrace.

    Yeah! Attack those rich job creators! Obama raised more money in Sept than Romney. How many millions has George Soros or those flakey weirdos in Hollywood given Obama?

    CNN you could say: Billionaires Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers have a great fund raising or Mitt Romney for president sponsors (god fathers) have a great fund raising. But you should let people know that the raise the fund from their pocket and they will expect to get paid after it is all done i.e. when Mitt become president
