Say what you will about Sarah Palin’s politics but one thing is for sure, the former Alaska governor is hauling in cash. ABC News has confirmed that between October 13 and November 22 Palin raised $469,000.
The 2008 vice presidential nominee’s involvement in the midterm elections as well as her TLC reality show, “Sarah Palin’s Alaska,” may have contributed to the recent surge in funding. Palin’s new book, “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag,” which will likely be a good fundraising tool as well, did not hit stores until November 23rd.
The recent influx of cash brings the total amount raised by Palin’s SarahPAC in 2009-2010 to approximately $5.3 million, roughly $3.2 million in the current fiscal year.
The recently raised $469,000 was a result of direct mail or online donations, according to TIME, which reports that Palin had only two fundraisers for her PAC this year (compared to Mitt Romney’s nine).
