Enthusiastic supporters of Rand Paul, a candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Kentucky, made political online history yesterday. The real-time donation counter at Dr. Paul’s website at RandPaul2010.com shows that the campaign has raised over $680,000. The campaign cleared over $430,000 in the 24 hour period. Watching the counter it is clear that donations are still coming in.
This online total, raised from thousands of individuals often in increments of $5 to $25, is clearly a record in Kentucky politics. Yesterday’s online raise brings Rand Paul’s fundaising to parity with the establishment candidate. No other candidate from Kentucky has raised this much money in one day online.
