Mitt Romney's nightmare continues. He's writing himself another large check to keep his campaign on budget. He also managed to raise an impressive 10 million dollars from others.

Romney's spending is lavish. He has 9m in the bank now. (In comparison, John Edwards has 12m without his federal cash infusion).

Romney has raised 45m from 100,000 donors and. written himself 17m. So his burn rate -- less his own money -- exceeds about 119 percent.
