Romney and his Republican Party raised $40 million in April, an unexpectedly strong haul that illustrates enthusiasm within the GOP and puts the presumptive Republican nominee roughly on par with what President Barack Obama and his Democrats raised in the first month of the general election. Romney, who is spending most of his time raising cash after a hard-fought primary, still trails Obama in what may be the most expensive presidential contest in history. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
