ABC’s Z. Byron Wolf Reports: It’s a little early to tell if this one-day donate-off Gunpowder Plot by supporters of Republican candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Tex., will raise the $10 million bucks they want it to, but the supporters are off to a good start.
The campaign said that as of midnight their fundraising meter at http://www.ronpaul2008.com/ stood at $2.77 million. As of noon eastern time , the fundraising meter showed over $4.69 million for this quarter. That’s $1.9 million raised online in twelve hours — a tidy sum for any campaign.
You may recall our report last week that Paul was working the "Remember, Remember the 5th of November" fundraising effort, which is not technically affiliated with the campaign, into his stump speech at appearances in South Carolina. In case you missed that, here it is.
