Rick Santorum reportedly raised $9 million in February. That’s almost ten times what he raised in the entire fourth quarter of 2011 ($917,000), twice what he raised in January ($4.5 million), and 40 percent more than Mitt Romney raised in January ($6.2 million). The Santorum campaign reports that one of its “best fundraising days” of the month was yesterday (the 29th), the day after Santorum won 15 of the 30 electoral votes in Romney’s native state of Michigan.

Romney’s fundraising tallies for February have not yet been released. At the least, however, the gap between the two candidates’ fundraising efforts seems to have narrowed dramatically.
