NOVI, Michigan—Mitt Romney's presidential campaign has far-outraised his opponents, but that doesn't mean he's flush with money.

With a sky-high burn rate, and running out of rich donors to tap, Romney made an appeal for small-dollar donors tonight after winning the Michigan and Arizona primaries — his first direct appeal for money at a non-fundraising event in recent memory.

“I need your support. I am asking for you to get out and vote," Romney said during his victory speech. "And I’m asking for you by the way to go on and pledge your support in every way possible."
