Apparently he has more cash on hand than McCain? Interesting. But that doesn’t mean he raised more cash than McCain, who posted a number of $11.5 Million.
ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos Reports: Though often regarded as a longshot candidate for president, Republican Ron Paul tells ABC News that he has an impressive $2.4 million in cash on hand after raising an equal amount during the second quarter, putting him ahead of one-time Republican frontrunner John McCain, who reported this week he has only $2 million in the bank.
In an exclusive interview taped Friday and airing Sunday on “This Week,” Paul said his campaign is on a better trajectory than McCain’s.
“I think some of the candidates are on the down-slope, and we’re on the up-slope,” said Paul.
Even though it may sound confusing, he apparently raised $2.4 in the Q2 and has that much in the bank as well. So there must have been some carry over.
Anyway you slice it, Paul being in 3rd place in the cash-on-hand game is noteworthy at this point, and the news is certain to give his supporters more fuel for their internet-driven fire.
