Associated Press, January 8, 2007:
Republican Mitt Romney and 400 of his strongest supporters raised over $6.5 million on Monday in a glitzy fundraising blitz aimed not only at financing his fledgling presidential campaign, but also scaring off potential rivals and putting existing ones on notice…
Romney himself said later that contributing any of his personal wealth to the campaign “would be akin to a nightmare,” but he said he reserved the right to do so should circumstances warrant.
Washington Post, January 22, 2008:
[Romney] has told supporters he will supplement individual donations with a sizable investment from his personal fortune. He lent his campaign $17 million from January to September of 2007, and some in his camp say they expect him to spend $40 million to $50 million on his effort to secure the nomination.
