Giuliani in GOP Fundraising Lead,
But Just Barely
The Green Zone: Special Third Quarter Fundraising Edition
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani finally filled out much of the rest of the Republican money picture, and if you're a stalwart for the GOP, it ain't pretty.
Giuliani raised $10.5 million in primary money, $11 million overall, which (barely) makes him the Republican money leader for the third quarter. And perhaps the best news for Giuliani supporters -- his campaign reports he will enter the critical final months of 2007 (when it's time to start buying all those television ads) with $16 million in cash on hand. That compares favorably to Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who reported having about $9 million in cash on hand, and that was with an $8.5 million loan from his personal bank account.
Sen. John McCain's campaign also released their numbers this afternoon. McCain expects to report $6 million raised in the third quarter, and approximately $3.6 million in cash on-hand. Read more on Giuliani and McCain.
