Obama campaign: We've raised more on ruling than Romney

But The Hill's Justin Sink reports that the Obama campaign isn't willing to back up their claim with detailed (or any) numbers:

Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt called the Romney campaign's attempts to tout its fundraising dollars "perverse."

"It's perverse that Mitt Romney won't share details about what he'd do for the millions he'd leave uninsured or at the whims of insurance companies when he 'kills Obamacare dead,' but he'll share the hourly details of his fundraising after the Supreme Court ruling," LaBolt wrote in an email statement.

"We've outraised the Romney campaign in that time period but that's not the point — our supporters are more committed than ever to ensuring that insurance companies can't drop coverage for people who get sick or discriminate against people with preexisting conditions by reelecting the President."

Meanwhile, the Romney campaign has offered continual (and gleeful) updates on how much Mitt has raised during that time period.

The current total stands at $4.6 million on the strength of over 47,000 donations.
