Q3 Fundraising. We can get to these numbers!Submitted by Raymond on Mon, 09/26/2011 - 00:00
"Perry’s backers have pegged his target at $10 million to $15 million, although his success will be judged in part by how much he raises outside Texas, where he is governor. Romney, meanwhile, is expected to post a similarly substantial sum, but aides cautioned that he was unlikely to surpass the $18 million he reported for the last quarter."
If the two "frontrunners" are only raising $10-15 million and most of that being big establishment money, then we are difinately in this thing.
The way I see it Ron will probably raise $6-8 million.
500k Ames bomb
2MM Birthday bomb
1MM Constitution bomb
1.5MM end of Q Push
1-3MM from other fundraising
If Perry and Romney come in at 12MM and Paul does 8MM then it is virtually even, because they have staffs of hundreds to keep afloat, while Paul spends all his money on informing new voters.
This is going to get closer before we are done!
