Romney sets US Republican fund-raising record

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney raises $100m in June, with supporters saying $1bn could be in sight.

    Recent figures show that for every dollar President Barack Obama's supporters spend, Republican candidate Mitt Romney's lay down eight.

    Romney raised more than $100m in June, a new record for his conservative party.

    Obama's Democrats hoped to raise more than $1bn this election, but their Republican rivals could top even that.
