Posted October 14, 2011 at 9:00am

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) raised more than $14 million in the third quarter from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, his White House campaign said today. All of that money is for the Republican primary, bringing his total primary fundraising to more than $32 million.

“We are proud of the $32 million we have raised for the campaign so far. This is just the start of the effort to help fuel Mitt Romney’s message that will defeat President Obama next November,” said Spencer Zwick, Romney’s national finance chairman.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, another top contender for the GOP nomination, pulled in $17 million in the first seven weeks of his campaign.

President Barack Obama, in conjunction with the Democratic National Committee, pulled in $70 million from July to September.
