Rand Paul ‘Moneybomb’ Raises $435,000

The one-day “moneybomb” for Rand Paul’s campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky, modeled on the 24-hour fundraisers that fueled his father Ron’s presidential bid, was a substantial success: the younger Paul raised $435,000 yesterday.

Paul’s war chest has around $677,000 in it, the fruit of three weeks of campaigning. For comparison, Republican front-runner Trey Grayson raised around $600,000 for the first two months of his bid, from May through July. As I wrote last week, Paul’s ability to run a well-funded, credible campaign—he’s only 11 points behind Grayson—is a minor complication when the NRSC looks at its 2010 map.

That money will go twice as far as Grayson's because it will be spent wisely and frugally and volunteers who will work for free and bust their hump to get Rand Paul known and elected…

This is one of those very important elections that will have an impact across all states. I hope the Ron Paul community outside of Kentucky will consider donating to this very important campaign. Rand shares the same political philosophy as his father and having him in the U.S. Senate is another step in taking this country back from the out of control Government machine.
