Washington: Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney has raised USD 10 million in a week after he roped in Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate, his campaign said on Saturday.

According to a memo issued by his campaign, the Republican presidential candidate has not only raised more than USD 10 million, but also more than 45,000 volunteers have signed up online.

The USD 10 million donations has come from more than 124,000 people, with 68 per cent of them being new donor. "Polling data shows Romney gaining since the announcement. Both Gallup and Rasmussen show us leading Obama in national polling, and recent statewide polling shows us picking up ground in Ohio and Virginia," said the memo issued by the Romney campaign.

"While President (Barack) Obama's team continues its campaign of frustration and division to distract voters from his failed record, the Romney-Ryan team will continue offering solutions to the challenges facing our nation. America is ready for a comeback and if this past week is any indication, America's comeback will begin on November 6th," it said.
