Crossroads reports $5.7 million raised in June

(CNN) - American Crossroads, a major conservative super PAC, brought in $5.7 million in June, according to a report the group filed with the Federal Election Commission late Friday.

The organization - co-founded by GOP strategist Karl Rove - has over $31.4 million cash on hand heading into the fall election, the report showed. It spent only $3.7 million last month.

In June, American Crossroads aired ads in Nebraska, Nevada, and Virginia, the group said.

Several spots tied Democratic candidates for U.S. Senate seats out of those states to President Barack Obama, criticizing them for "wasteful spending," the economic stimulus measure, and for raising the national debt limit.

The group's largest donation - of $2 million - came from Texas homebuilder Bob Perry, who in June also contributed $2 million to the super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, Restore Our Future.

  1. INDICT ROVE!!!!

    This man is a Criminal and should have been indicted for his role in putting the lives of our US CIA Agents in jeopardy when he outed Valerie Plame. Turd Blossom was saved by his buddy George W. Bush. Now he wants to buy the Election with Foreign Money and the Money of Adelson who is being investigated for his involvement with the Chinese Mob! Corruption – YOU BET!!! If you ask Romney he will take three or four positions on this issue!

    all this talk about how bad the economy is with people out of work and some losing their homes, I somewhat find it rather insulting to keep hearing about these super-pacs on both side raising all these millions of dollars. Bottom line is one of these candidates is going to lose and that money could have spent better somewhere else.

    Democrats, heads up, Republicans are desperate and are back too using their same old "Code Words" so make sure we call them out on it so all Americans know who they really are.

    All super pac money should be reported as a single figure listed as outside sources and the donors identified. Based onthese tow articles Super Pacs raised nearly 27 million for Romney in June. Why and what are the sources of this money? what are they trying to buy?
