Texas Congressman Ron Paul, a Republican presidential candidate, launched his latest money bomb on Wednesday. The “Black This Out” money bomb has raised nearly $700,000 as of 11am EDT.
In a email to his campaign supporters, Paul urged his activists to donate to his campaign. “None of our hard work matters unless I can raise the resources to break through the media blackout and take my message of liberty straight to the voters,” Paul wrote.
Paul relies on grassroots contributions to sustain his campaign. “Unlike my establishment opponents, I can’t hit up Wall Street bankster fat cats for big checks. Nor would I want to,” Paul insisted.
Paul hopes that the success of past money bombs will continue with his “Black This Out” money bomb at the beginning of the 4th quarter of campaign fundraising. Paul’s birthday money bomb raised more than $1.6 million in a 24 hour period, reports The Los Angeles Times.
