Romney transfers $3M to NRSC, NRCC

POLITICO’s Ken Vogel reports:

Unlike President Barack Obama, who’s drawn complaints for being stingy with his campaign cash, Mitt Romney is spreading the wealth among his GOP congressional allies.

Romney’s biggest grossing committee last month steered at least $3 million to boost GOP congressional candidates who will share the ballot with him, according to finance reports filed last week.

Romney Victory, a joint fundraising committee set up by Romney’s campaign and the Republican National Committee, on the last day of July transferred $1.5 million each to the National Republican Congressional Committee and the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

The July transfers, reported here for the first time, were revealed in the congressional committees’ latest Federal Election Commission reports. They helped both committees outraise their Democratic competitors – the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
