Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, raised just over $14 million for his presidential campaign during the three months that ended Sept. 30, according to campaign filings delivered to the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

The amount gives Mr. Romney what is expected to be the second largest third-quarter haul in the Republican field, behind Gov. Rick Perry of Texas. Mr. Perrys aides said last week that he had raised more than $17 million for the period, which covered his first weeks in the campaign.

Mr. Romney also spent more than $12 million during the summer, twice as much as he spent during the previous quarter, reflecting some increased investments in field operations and staff in states like New Hampshire and Nevada, as the Republican primary campaigns swing into high gear. Mr. Perry, who entered the race midway through the quarter, appears to have spent much less, about $2 million.

But the two ended September with about the same amount of cash on hand, $14.7 million for Mr. Romney and somewhere north of $15 million for Mr. Perry, according to his campaign.
