Romney relied heavily on large-dollar donors: Just 6% of individual contributions came in amounts of $200 or less. About $517,000 was collected by six bundlers, the campaign revealed in a list posted to the Federal Elections Commission website.
The campaign spent $5.6 million, including about $750,000 on payroll costs and $500,000 on travel.
Romney established himself as the fundraising frontrunner of the GOP field in mid-May, when he staged a highly choreographed telethon at the Las Vegas Convention Center. That week, the campaign spent more than $300,000 in Las Vegas on hotels, food and other event-related expenses, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Elections Commission Friday afternoon.
About $6 million of Romney’s haul came from three states: California ($2.4 million), New York ($2.1 million) and Florida ($1.5 million).
