….with what they are reporting as a $3 million third quarter. (That amount might not end up being accurate–the Paul campaign still hasn't given out official numbers.) Excerpt:
The antiwar libertarian raised more than $3 million in the third quarter, up from $2.4 million in the second quarter and $641,000 in the first three months of the year.
For the three months ended Sept. 30, Paul out-raised old Washington hands including Democrats Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut, who took in $1.5 million, and Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, who raised just under $2 million.
For the year, Paul has collected around $6 million. He remains stuck in national polls at around 5% or less — about the same level of support as another Republican dark horse, Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor.
The well-spoken Huckabee placed second in the Ames, Iowa, straw poll this summer and is a favorite among Beltway pundits. But so far, his campaign is staying mum on his third-quarter fund-raising numbers, suggesting that they haven't dramatically improved from the $766,000 Huckabee raised in the second quarter.
As Glenn "Instapundit" Reynolds, from whom this is via, said–and you know he can't love him too much Ron "Out of Iraq Now" Paul–"Can you still call him a minor candidate?" Somehow, I bet the relevant MSM will still manage to.
