Washington (AP) - Republican Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign reports $17 million in contributions from April through June, and $18 million in the bank for both the primary and general elections.
Overall, that's an increase for Giuliani over the first quarter, when he reported nearly $16 million in contributions. About $1 million of that sum was for the general election.
Earlier, Mitt Romney's campaign said the former Massachusetts governor had raised $14 million exclusively for the primary and had tapped his personal wealth for an extra $6.5 million.
Romney's fundraising fell short of his first quarter, when he raised more than $20 million and lent himself more than $2.3 million.
All of Romney's money is for the primary election.
Giuliani and Romney are well ahead of rival John McCain, who reported raising $11.2 million during the period, but says he has just $2 million in cash on hand.
