Mitt Romney reportedly raised more than $100 million in June, the best fundraising month of his campaign so far.

Politico's Mike Allen first reported the total, which includes contributions to both Romney's campaign and the Romney Victory Fund—a joint account between the Romney campaign and the Republican National Committee. A Romney spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

That's two record-breaking months in a row for the Romney team. In May, the presumptive Republican nominee raised nearly $77 million—almost $17 million more than President Barack Obama's re-election campaign. The Obama campaign has not yet announced its June totals.

Over the last month, Romney has intensified his fundraising schedule, headlining more than 20 private events to raise cash for his campaign. On June 20, Romney pulled in upwards of $8 million in a single day during events in Michigan, which aides at the time described as his single best day of fundraising so far in this campaign.

But the most telling number will be how much cash Romney has in the bank. While Romney outraised Obama in May, Obama still had more than $100 million cash on hand—compared with just $17 million for Romney.
