ABC: Ron Paul Is Still Raising Big Money, But Just Who Is Giving?

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.

In fact, Paul’s non-interventionist philosophy helped him raise $32,089 among those who identify their employer as the U.S. military, the biggest total among his GOP colleagues.

Outside of the military, some of Paul’s biggest donations came from the financial and communications sectors.

Employees of Google, Entergy Corporation, and Lockheed Martin are some of the top companies whose employees have backed Paul."
