Although Ron Paul effectively ended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination weeks ago, you wouldn’t know by his fundraising.
During May, Paul raised $1.78 million and ended the month with nearly $3.3 million in the bank — more than he had at the end of April — with no debt, according to newly filed federal campaign finance reports.
While that’s a pittance compared with presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s cash stash, Paul’s financial position remains significantly better than those of fellow former contenders Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich, who both owe creditors millions of dollars.
Paul himself acknowledges he won’t be his party’s nominee.
