The political organization run by Ben Carson, the Fox News contributor and potential 2016 presidential candidate, raised $1.2 million and spent $1.1 million of it.

The American Legacy PAC reported its fundraising has now reached $2.4 million for this election cycle and has built a donor base of 350,000 Americans.

Carson, a former neurosurgeon, became an instant star among conservatives after a fiery 2013 speech at the National Prayer Breakfast with President Barack Obama sitting nearby. If Carson decides to run, he will be able to tap those supporters for early campaign cash.

Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker and presidential hopeful, advises the group.
