Rep. Ron Paul raised more than $1 million this week for his presidential campaign through another “moneybomb,’’ as he calls them—a technique pioneered by Paul supporters that uses Internet appeals to gin up thousands of small contributions on a single day.
This one, to mark Constitution Day on Sept. 17, raised about $1.4 million.
It was the fifth “moneybomb” of the 2012 cycle for the Texas congressman; the largest haul, of $1.8 million, came on Aug. 20 and marked the candidate’s 76th birthday.
LAKE JACKSON, Texas, Sep 15, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- In a new Reuters/Ipsos survey, 2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul polls within striking distance of President Obama among registered voters.
"Our campaign has been gaining momentum for some time now, and this is yet another poll that clearly proves how competitive we are versus the President" said Ron Paul 2012 Campaign Chairman Jesse Benton. "Dr. Paul is gaining ground in poll after poll, affirming that people are looking for real change instead of the status quo they are being offered from the establishment."
These results come just a few weeks after a Rasmussen poll showed him within a percent of President Obama in a head-to-head matchup.
