Talking heads abound saying that Romney raised over 10 million dollars this past Monday during a fund raising event. But wait, that’s not the fullness of it all. What Romney has actually collected is mostly a mix of Pledges and Donations adding to that amount. I suppose we probably get these kinds of not quite accurate reports on the news all the time but I think it is disingenuous as this kind of news is used to judge support and even direct support to candidates.
Romney himself says they have yet to collect the money at round 2:50 in this video from the event.
This post is not meant to be a Romney Bash but a caution against taking headlines and words of talking heads at face value.
