Ron Paul Reports Raising $3.3 Million in February for Campaign
U.S. Representative Ron Paul of Texas reported raising $3.3 million for his presidential campaign in February, trailing at least two of his rivals for the party’s nomination during the month.
Paul, who has yet to win a primary or caucus in 2012, has been the second-most prolific fundraiser overall among the Republican candidates, behind only former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Paul has now raised $34.4 million for his campaign.
He spent $3.5 million in February and ended the month with $1.4 million in cash on hand, his campaign said in a filing today with the Federal Election Commission in advance of the March 20 deadline.
Romney’s campaign said it had raised $11.5 million and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum’s campaign said it had brought in $9 million. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich hasn’t said how much he raised in February.
Paul again relied on smaller donations, as more than half of his funds came in amounts of $200 or less.
