Ron Paul's chump changeSubmitted by DeMolay on Thu, 10/06/2011 - 15:30
Really, it's news that only political junkies pay attention to. But it's still staggering.
The Times reported Wednesday that "Rep. Ron Paul raised more than $8 million for his presidential campaign in the last three months" from 100,000 individual donors.
And that's not all. "Texas Gov. Rick Perry said he raised more than $17 million from 22,000 donors."
Wait, there's more. Though he didn't announce a total, "a source close to the Mitt Romney campaign said the former Massachusetts governor's third-quarter fundraising take was expected to be more than $14 million."
And let's be bipartisan here. Though President Obama's fundraising total in the quarter is reportedly lagging, he's still expected to rake in $55 million, compared with an $86-million haul in the previous quarter.
