Mitt Romney's presidential campaign has garnered $4.2 million since the Supreme Court upheld the healthcare reform law Thursday, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul reports.

That represents an almost 100 percent increase from what the campaign had hauled in by early Thursday afternoon.

"Fundraising update for #FullRepeal: 42k+ donations, $4.2 million raised online for @MittRomney since #scotus decision," Saul wrote on Twitter at 3:23 a.m. Friday.

Romney has pledged to repeal Obamacare quickly if he is elected.

"Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare,” Romney wrote in a fundraising e-mail to supporters Thursday, The Hill reports. “But regardless of what the court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when I’m president, the bad news of Obamacare will be over."

The court upheld the law’s mandate for individuals to buy health insurance or face a penalty by classifying the mandate as a tax. That will give Romney an opening to attack Obama for raising taxes.
