Still, national polls have former Massachusetts Gov. Romney lagging behind former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in the race for the Republican nomination.
According to reports filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission, Romney has amassed more than $61 million, including $17.35 million he has lent his campaign. He ended the third quarter of 2007 with $9.2 million in the bank, compared with $16 million for Giuliani, who has collected $47.2 million overall, the FEC reports show.
Those cash-on-hand totals paled in comparison with those of the leading Democratic candidates. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, the party's front-runner in polls, reported having $50 million in the bank and raising $80 million. Her closest rival, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, had $36 million of the $78 million he raised left.
Former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) ended the quarter with $12.4 million in the bank, after raising $29.9 million in the first nine months of the year.

Frantic fans of the British singer Lily Allen had a long day on Tuesday after wrong reports were published on the Internet. It was initially reported that U.S. Customs have revoked her visa and she will not be allowed in the country. The publications claimed that Allen, 22, was detained at Los Angeles airport flying from Australia and her visa was revoked due to the singer's clash with reporters in London earlier this year.
Allen's manager Neale Easterby responded to the reports by calling them "rubbish". "She's in Las Vegas right now. She will be there until Thursday shooting a video with Common and Kanye West for Common's track 'Drivin' Me Wild'," the manager said. He also confirmed that Lily Allen's tour will go as scheduled.
Lily Allen is the model Internet success. She became popular after creating a MySpace account and posting her demo songs on it. Thousands of visitors listened the demos and producers Greg Kurstin and Mark Ronson helped Lily with her debut album " Alright, Still".
