ron paul’s record online haul
from washington post: Today, Nov. 5, marks not only Paul’s best fundraising haul in a single day – approximately $3.75 million by 11 p.m. EST – but online observers say it’s also the most money raised by a candidate on the Web in a single day. And the day’s not over yet. “Damn. Wow. Um, that’s pretty awesome,” said a stunned Jerome Armstrong who served as Howard Dean’s online strategist. Armstrong, the founder of the popular blog MyDD, said Dean raised as much as $700,000 in one day toward the end of the primary race. “But not a million,” Armstrong added. “What Paul is doing – or what his supporters are doing – is really impressive.” You can view all the fundraising data here.
