November 20th, Ron Paul sent out an E-mail at 2pm asking for donations. This E-mail asked supporters to donate now as opposed to later. Ron Paul requested funds to help his campaign in the early primary states, arguing that the funds could be used more effectively now as opposed to later. Ron Paul supporters stepped up to the challenge and by the end of the day donated a quarter of a million to the campaign.
On an unrelated note, Mike Huckabee had an official fund raiser today, which pulled in just over $220,000. This helped Huckabee reach his goal of one million and change for the month of November. Click the graph below to enlarge it.
