Romney Rakes In $24M

Mitt Romney’s campaign revealed Wednesday that it brought in $24 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, bringing the frontrunner’s total for the year to $56 million. That exceeds the campaign’s goal of $50 million and sets up Romney to enter the South Carolina primary with $19 million in the bank. More than 150 Romney financiers celebrated his win Tuesday night in New Hampshire, and another 300 members of his finance committee met Wednesday in Boston for meetings.
