ABC: Ron Paul Is Still Raising Big Money, But Just Who Is Giving?Submitted by bobbyw24 on Fri, 09/23/2011 - 06:24
Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul is still raising big amounts of cash online.
Just this past week, the campaign raised more than $1 million through the use of “moneybombs” or one-day cash grabs.
The Sept. 17 moneybomb corresponded with the 224th anniversary of the creation of the United States Constitution.
Paul’s fundraising frenzies helped him pull in about $4.5 million as of June 30.
Among his GOP colleagues, only Mitt Romney raised more than Paul, R-Texas.
The Paul campaign said that most of the money from the latest Constitution Day moneybomb came from small donors contributing less than $200.
