Ron Paul: Five Million Dollar Man
Ron Paul raised $5.08 million last quarter. While not quite enough to buy two bionic legs, a bionic arm, and a bionic eye and thereby become better, stronger, faster, it is certainly “real money.” Indeed it “rivals those of John McCain and Bill Richardson” and is five times Mike Huckabee’s total. And it’s “a far larger total than anyone expected from Paul.”
Yet, despite his fundraising prowess, Paul is a candidate barely alive. He doesn’t even rate inclusion on RealClear Politics’ summary chart. Or the latest Rasmussen chart. Indeed, as best I can tell, he’s still within the margin of error of Oscar Goldman.
