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 Paulâ€™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. Paulâ€™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.
â€œDr. Paul’s fundraising comes almost exclusively from individuals, not special interests,â€ LibertyPAC director Jesse Benton told POLITICO. â€œHe received contributions from all 50 states, and his average gift this quarter was under $70, demonstrating his broad grassroots support.
