“Mitt Romney raised $100 million in August, his campaign told bundlers last week in Tampa, according to Politico,” per Political Wire. We’ve yet to receive any confirmation on this amount from the Romney campaign.
"Before Mitt Romney retired from Bain Capital, the enormously profitable investment firm he founded, he made sure to lock in his gains, both realized and expected, for years to come," the Washington Post reports,” via Political Wire. “He did so, in part, the way millions of other Americans do -- with the tax benefits of an individual retirement account. But he was able to turbocharge the impact of those advantages and other tax breaks in his severance package from Bain in a way that few but the country's super-rich can ever hope to do."
