Sen. Rand Paul raised over $1.2 million in the third quarter of this year, according to news reports.
By the end of September, the Rand Paul for Senate campaign committee had $1.25 million on hand, an adviser to the Kentucky Republican told Politico
Paul raised the money through three operations, according to Politico. They are Rand Paul for Senate, the RANDPAC political action committee, and Rand Paul Victory, a fundraising group that funnels donations into the other groups.
The senator's exact tally has yet to be disclosed to federal election authorities, Politico reports, but his money-raising apparatus could be transferred to a presidential campaign should Paul — whose current term ends in 2016 — decide on a White House run.
