(CNN) — Documents filed with the Federal Election Commission Friday show President Barack Obama's presidential campaign raised $46 million in June and spent $58 million.
Meanwhile, his Republican challenger Mitt Romney brought in $33 million through his campaign, and spent $27.5 million. The Republican candidate's spending last month was nearly doubled from in May, when his campaign spent just over $15 million.
The filings from Friday indicated that the Romney campaign finished June with $22.5 million cash on hand, while Obama's campaign had $97.5 million in the bank.
Earlier this month both organizations released their joint fund-raising numbers with their respective party committees. Those figures showed the Republicans bringing in approximately $100 million, compared to the $71 million raised by Obama and the Democrats.
