LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Presidential candidate Ron Paul, 72, is expecting to raise more than his $12 million goal for the fourth quarter, with upbeat predictions from the candidate himself.
Paul is competing in New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada, and said he expects to have money to campaign through Super Tuesday, Feb. 5, when at least 22 states may hold primaries and decide the nomination.
Paul’s campaign is resonating with a wide range of supporters, raning from Green Party activists to fiscal conservatives.
His advocacy of small government and a smaller involvement overseas has created a growing groundswell of support, as well as burgeoning his campaign coffers.
A fierce critic of federal spending, Paul said that even as president he probably couldn’t do away with entitlement programs such as Medicare.
