The original record was set in 2004 by John Kerry to the tune of $5.7 million. And that was after the Democratic convention. Think of all the press surrounding that event. Think of the drive to try and get Bush out of the White House.
And yet with very little fanfare, Ron Paul has gone over $6,000,000 today.
That puts his total raised this quarter at around $18,000,000. And there’s still one more money bomb to go on December 31st.
If that next money bomb is even half what this one is, Paul is over $20 million for Q4. That is simply a phenomenal number. He’ll have raised more money than a lot of the GOP candidates combined.
So what now? Will Iowa be his state? New Hampshire? South Carolina? Nevada?
We’re less than 30 days from finding out.
