Ron Paul & Rick Perry Fundraising ReportsNews Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul says he raised $8 million in the last three months. The Texas congressman said Wednesday that his campaign will report that sum when it files its fundraising report with the Federal Election Commission later this month. Paul also says his campaign has more than 100,000 donors. Paul says “we are very pleased with that” and called his effort “pretty sound numbers.” Paul raised $4.5 million during the first fundraising quarter of his campaign.
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Texas Gov. Rick Perry has raised $17.1 million since August 13, and has $15 million in cash on hand. That’s according to an aide for the Republican presidential candidate. The aide spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting an announcement later Wednesday. Almost all of the money is for use in the GOP primary election. About $50,000 was raised for a general election fund in case Perry wins the GOP nomination. His chief rival for the GOP nomination, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, brought in $18 million during his first three-month fundraising period. Romney’s expected to come in below that for the fundraising quarter that ended Sept. 30.
