Congressman Ron Paul's legions of supporters are at it again. They've got another one of their moneybombs planned for June 5, 2011. If you are not familiar with what a moneybomb is, then you can read up on it at Wikipedia. Basically, a moneybomb is a 24-hour fund-raising explosion, that came into being in support of Congressman Paul during his 2008 presidential run, that can and has easily brought in millions of dollars online in a single day. Congressman Paul holds the one day moneybomb record, set on December 16, 2007, when he raised over $6 million dollars in a 24-hour period.
Congressman Paul has formally entered the 2012 race for President of the United States and Paul's savvy and dedicated supporters have started bombing dollars once again. Just recently, Paul supporters had a debate day moneybomb to celebrate the first 2012 Republican Presidential debate held in South Carolina. The supporters raised over $1 million dollars for Congressman Paul without him even lifting a finger as he watched his coffers fill during the 24-hour period of May 5, 2011.
Governor Mitt Romney just recently announced that he had raised $10.25 million dollars in one day, but the specifics are still unclear as to how many donors, the average donation, and whether the money was just pledged or was cold hard cash in hand. No other Republican candidates have raised over one million dollars in a fundraiser yet except Congressman Paul and possibly Governor Romney.
As of the time of this writing, Paul's supporters are ten days from dropping another one of their moneybombs.
