Ron Paul Raised More Money in the Second Quarter than Cain, Bachmann or Pawlenty

Ron Paul has raised more than all of his competitors except for Mitt Romney. The Paul campaign has announced that it raised $4.518 million during the 2nd quarter.

Dr.Paul’s $4.5 million raise during the 2nd quarter exceeded the 2nd quarter fundraising totals of Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Herman Cain, Jon Huntsman and Newt Gingrich. Bachmann raised $4.2 million. Pawlenty raised $4.2 million. Cain raised just under $2.5 million. Huntsman raised $4.1 million and Gingrich pulled in more than $2 million. Romney raised $18.25 million.

Clearly, Romney's bankster support helped him in the money raise category. Congressman Paul has no such support.

Jesse Benton, Paul’s campaign manager, attributed tha strong 2nd quarter of fundraising to “a broad base of small donors who are energized by Dr. Paul’s message of limited government and individual liberty.” Benton added that “unlike other candidates in this race, none of these contributions are for the general election, meaning they can all be put toward the nomination process.”


  1. Isn't it good netiquette to supply a link to the original story? Just asking.

  2. Wenzel doesn't know anything about netiquette or etiquette...or haven't you been paying attention?

    He's the libertarian caveman.

    Beats them over the head with a thick Hayek, lances them with a pointed Mises, and them roasts them over a fiery Rothbard.

    His conversation is largely oafish grunts, interspersed with slurp, when he sees a particularly juicy passage in Human Action or a Czech beauty doing an upside down split...

    To ask him to link, spell, or stay civil is futile.

    Just be grateful you don't have to drink soup opposite him every evening.

    I'm told it registers on the Richter scale..

  4. Lila, that is just MEAN! We all know Bob lost his ability to speak after a horrible bar fight with Bob Murphy.

    You should be ashamed of your insensitivity- hell, David Brooks wanted to take him off life support until Dr Paul intervened!
