Carson raises $20M for ’16 bid in past 3 months

The staggering haul for a candidate who has never held elected office has come from more than 600,000 donations from more than 350,000 donors-an example of grassroots fundraising reach that has placed his campaign’s finance operation in an enviable position.


Ben Carson has gotten a financial boost in his bid for the White House.

Campaigning in New Hampshire, Carson tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that “things are going extraordinarily well”. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign said late Wednesday it had raised $28 million, while Vermont Sen. Flush with money, Bennett stated the marketing crusade initiated plans start reserving tv ad space across the South for main contests agreed to be scheduled for early March.

“I would guess that we’ve outraised the Republican National Committee and many of our opponents maybe combined”, Bennett said. His appeal within the Republican base, even amid comments that have drawn scrutiny, including his statement that he wouldn’t support a Muslim for president, has proven steady in recent weeks. Bernie Sanders’ team said it had pulled in roughly $26 million.

Sanders has raised $24 million, well above the $15 million he raised in the second quarter, according to The New York Times.

That brings the total raised since Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, launched his campaign for the 2016 presidential election in May, to a few $30 million. Watts added that the campaign raised more than $1 million in a 24-hour period surrounding the last debate.

The Carson campaign declined to detail how much money it spent to raise that cash.


But as of June, the Carson campaign was burning through donor money faster than nearly anyone else’s in the race. “That was back in the day before they would shoot you”, he said Wednesday.
