Ron Paul a week ago called on his supporters: raise a fresh half a million before the end of the fundraising quarter (which ended just minutes ago as I write).

He raised the half million in three days, and then upped the ante: a cool million.

According to his web site as of this posting, he handily exceeded that new goal as well, ending up with $1,201,860.52 raised in a week. This ought to help generate some press attention, as well as being an impressive sign of widespread, and undimming, enthusiasm for his campaign.
