Rand Paul Banks $172K in Web Fundraising

Tuesday, 29 Jun 2010 12:28 PM

 

Rand Paul, a political outsider who largely financed his U.S. Senate primary race with Internet donations, has banked $172,000 in his first Web-based fundraiser of the general election season.

The Republican received contributions Monday from more than 2,000 people over a 24-hour period. Campaign manager Jesse Benton says the average donation was less than $90.

The showing was far from Paul's best since he entered the race last year. He had raised more than $1.2 million in a series of Web-based fundraisers during the GOP primary. The largest of the three, held in August, netted more than $400,000 in a 24-hour period.

Paul faces Democrat Jack Conway in the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning. Conway is Kentucky's attorney general and a proven fundraiser.
