Ron Paul Surpasses Fund Raising Record Held by John Kerry

Dec. 17, 2007

Ron Paul Surpasses Fund Raising Record Held by John Kerry

By Tony Rutherford
Huntingtonnews.net Writer

Huntington, WV (HNN) – On the 234th Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, Texas Congressman Ron Paul’s supporters have set two fund raising records --- one for the Internet and a second for most raised in 24 hours.

As 24 hours approach on the West Coast, Paul supporters bested John Kerry’s fund raising record from 2004 when $5.7 million was added in 24 hours. After their “Tea Party” money bomb, Dr. Paul has $6.4 million and counting.

And, Paul donations again set a 24 hour internet record.

Supporters through out the United States raised $4.3 million in 24 hours Nov. 5; now , the scrappy grassroots internet savvy supporters have beaten their own record by about 150% as of 2 a.m. Dec. 17. The supporters of Dr. Ron Paul for President started the $$$ Party with just 11.5 million and now has over $18. million thanks to their army of devotees who have raised GOP eye brows as the only candidate not supporting the War in Iraq.

Paul's fundraising popularity continues to draw envy from other camps. And, why not, none of the Republican or Democratic candidates have succeeded at increasing their fundraising each and every quarter. Paul’s stats: $640,000 (1 Q), $2.4 million (2 Q), $5.1 million (3 Q) and they have already surpassed the $18 million for this quarter. Mike Huckabee seems to be surging in the polls yet has raised under $3 million since October !st.

Jesse Benton, a campaign spokesman, said that Paul has attracted 107,000 donors this quarter and their median donation has been $50.

Meanwhile, in North Carolina, when residents of Raleigh, Greensboro and Charlotte looked up in the sky Friday, they did not see . No, the Paul blimp launched before 9 a.m. Dec. 14 and the Who Is Ron Paul aerial billboard The blimp will be floating past major East Coast cities and hopefully be in the sky for the New Hampshire primary Jan. 8.

Paul initially served in Congress during the late 70s and early 80s. In 1976, he and three other Republicans first endorsed Gov. Ronald Reagan for President. After voluntarily relinquishing his seat in 1984 to return to his medical practice, Dr. Paul returned to Congress in 1997 to represent the 14th Texas Congressional District.

Having been called a citizen/statesman, Dr. Paul has never voted for a tax increase, never voted for an unbalanced budget, and never voted for federal restrictions on gun ownership. In addition, he’s not voted to raise congressional pay or taken a government paid junket.

Despite heavy pressure to follow the majority, Paul voted against the Patriot Act, against internet regulation and against the Iraq War.

No, they beat it by 50%. They raised 150% of the earlier amount.

The odds in Vegas have went from 20-1 to 5-1 for the Republican nomination. If he keeps picking up support like this I predict he will mysteriously die or be shot.

That was the high end goal but the record of 6.4 is modest eh?

Unfortunately, there is this possibility as well.

It's a bit disappointing since I was expecting 10, but if I recognize that it's coming from a 2nd or 3rd tier candidate it's pretty impressive.

Dreaming is nice, but obviously Mr. Paul is the Frontrunner.
