Ron Paul Money Bomb: $700,000+ In First 8 Hours

53

Those are the initial numbers, and if they hold up, Paul is looking at a $2+ million day.

But it looks like RP supporters were looking for more…

It has begun. In the first 20 minutes after midnight, Ron Paul raised his daily haul of $65000. It’s 2:07 now, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down too much.

The donor rate is about 1000 per hour now, so there’ll be plenty left to donate throughout the day. I expect we’ll see another big spike in the morning, and a large hump around 5, when people return from work.

Here’s to hoping for $3 million with change — with the present rate, this is going to be a new record, if it already isn’t one.

We’ll keep updating this post throughout the day as it warrants it. Trust me, I’m pulling for all of you Roniacs to shock the world, but this is a tough thing to pull off and even tougher when you’re not officially endorsed by the campaign.

Best of luck.

UPDATE, 8:30 a.m.:
He passed $1 million a little while ago and now stands at a little over $1,050,000.

Past $1,600,000. Looks to be on pace for more than $3.5 million by day’s end.

UPDATE, 11:50 a.m.:
Total is very near $1,900,000, which would put him at $3.8 million by midnight.

The $2 million threshold was just reached, but the expected 24-hour total is down to $3.6 million at this point.
