It was the second straight month that Romney has raised more money than Obama as the two campaigns prepare for the November election.

Obama’s campaign says in an e-mail to supporters that June was their best fund-raising month of the campaign. But they tell supporters, “We still got beat. Handily.”

Ann Marie Habershaw, the campaign’s chief operating officer, says in the e-mail that if they lose the election, “It will be because we didn’t close the gap enough when we had the chance.”

Obama officials have warned the fund-raising deficit could harm the president’s chances of winning re-election.
