ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – The Ron Paul Presidential Campaign concluded the third quarter of 2007 yesterday with two substantial milestones, raising over $1,000,000 on-line in one week and staging a major canvassing effort in the key battleground state of New Hampshire.
Paul campaign officials set an ambitious goal on Monday, September 24th to raise an additional $500,000 on-line in the final week of the third quarter. The effort brought in $200,000 on Tuesday alone and by Wednesday, having met its initial goal, the campaign raised the bar to $1,000,000. On Saturday night, the campaign passed the million dollar mark after just six days, and finished over $1,200,000 on-line in one week.
In addition to fundraising strength, the campaign also demonstrated strong boots-on-ground prowess, holding a rally and canvassing efforts in New Hampshire. On Saturday and Sunday, 29 members of the Paul Family were joined by hundreds of volunteers in a state wide door knocking effort that touched at least 12,000 Granite State households. The effort is believed to be the biggest two-day direct voter contact operation executed by a GOP candidate in New Hampshire this election cycle.
“From Los Angles to Manchester, from Seattle to Miami, our campaign continues to grow by the day,” said campaign manager Lew Moore. “No other candidate has captured the hearts of grassroots Americans like Dr. Paul. We will continue to build on our September success and push toward victory in January.”
