Ron Paul’s campaign has told The Hill it raised $13 million in the last three months for his presidential run, a substantial total that is likely to be eclipsed only by Mitt Romney.
Paul’s fundraising has been strong throughout the year — he raised $8 million the quarter before last, and with Rick Perry’s recent spending struggles might have the most money in the race besides Romney, who said earlier this week that this has been his strongest fundraising quarter after raising $17 million last quarter.
The money will allow Paul to compete as long as he wishes for the nomination. He’s been organizing hard in later-voting states and, as in 2008, is likely to stay in the race until the end. But this time, he’ll likely have the resources to remain on the airwaves.
