Ron Paul outraises all candidates again

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0311/52317.html

Ron Paul raked in roughly $3 million during the first quarter through his various political organizations, POLITICO has learned.

Though not all of that money can be transferred to a potential presidential campaign, the big haul demonstrates Paul’s continuing force as a grassroots-powered online fundraiser.

The Texas congressman raised $1 million through his federal PAC and $2 million through Campaign for Liberty, a 501C(4) which cannot transfer funds directly to political organizations. Paul’s fundraising documents, to be filed later Thursday with the FEC, will also show he has $1.7 million on hand in his congressional campaign account.

“Dr. Paul's fundraising comes almost exclusively from individuals, not special interests,” LibertyPAC director Jesse Benton told POLITICO. “He received contributions from all 50 states, and his average gift this quarter was under $70, demonstrating his broad grassroots support.

“Dr. Paul's grassroots fundraising prowess is unmatched, and any 2012 political endeavor on which he embarks will have the financial backing it takes to win,” Benton added.

Much of Paul’s funds came via a Presidents' Day money bomb that netted $700,000 for his federal PAC. The money bomb was promoted through Paul’s Facebook page and libertarian websites promising his fans that “if we show him enough support, he will announce his official candidacy for 2012.”

I, and others, wholeheartedly disagree. Yes, he didn't get the GOP nomination, but I doubt even Paul thought he would. Instead, his candidacy ignited a dialogue in this country and within his own party that had profound impact in 2010 and beyond.

I think that with the Obama administration spending money at the speed of light and the dollar's presses running 24/7, the conversation would have happened anyway. I don't think Ron Paul 08 had any lasting effect other than to cut a sliver of voters away from the Republican party and put them in third party territory permanently. What endures from 08 is that moderates don't win and that the office of President does not lend itself to university liberals and/or rank amateur politicians.

He started his liberty group with the leftover money as I recall. BTW it's a lot of youth on campus who are enthusiastic about Paul right now.

Vice President Ventura?
April 04, 2011 9:29 AM

He’s been a Navy SEAL, pro-wrestler, author, governor of Minnesota and even appeared on a soap opera. So is running for Vice President the next thing on Jesse Ventura’s to-do list?

“I will tell you this. If Ron Paul runs as an Independent, I will give great consideration to being his running mate,” he told me on “GMA.”

Ventura dedicated his latest book, “63 Documents the Government Doesn’t Want You to Read,” to Rep. Ron Paul calling him “the only federal elected official who will stand up for America on the congressional floor.”

But the former governor said he would not join the ticket if Paul runs as a Republican.

“Never. I will not be a Democrat or a Republican. They are the problem, not the solution. We need to abolish political parties in this country,” Ventura said.

What about Rep. Michele Bachmann? She’s flirting with a bid, is from Ventura’s home state and even represents the district he lives in.

“And could she be president?” I asked.

“Not with my vote she won’t be,” he replied.

I got that link from Drudge Report - which is actually a goldmine of interesting stories right now.

Where the hell are all the Drudge re-posters today?
