Ron Paul pockets $6 million in one day from money bomb

The second money bomb of Ron Paul, the Tea Party, has raised $6 million on Sunday, beating all previous records.

Ron Paul pockets $6 million in one day from money bomb When you talk about grass root campaigning and new age vision, you talk about Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. His "money bomb" fundraised on Sunday, dubbed the Ron Paul Tea Party to commemorate the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, raised $6.1 million, breaking all records, including his previous money bomb $4.2 million number. According to spokesman for Congressman Ron Paul, over 60,000 first-time donors contributed to the Tea Party fundraiser, greatly enlarging the support base of the GOP presidential hopeful. The money raised during the Ron Paul Tea Party will be used for campaigning in Iowa, spokesman for Ron Paul said. With the money from the Sunday "money bomb" added, the total contributions to Ron Paul's campaign in the fourth quarter of 2007 have now increased to over $18.2 million.

 Ron Paul continues to be the most bet on presidential candidate at the online sportsbook Bodog Sports. Supporters of the Congressman have driven the odds on Ron Paul of winning the Republican presidential nomination to 5/2, behind only Rudy Giuliani. Ron Paul's odds on becoming the next U.S. President were also cut drastically, from 18/1 all the way down to 6/1 to win the 2008 Elections. The odds makers, however, have "wised up" and all the odds offered on the Ron Paul Tea Party (see links below) matched the bookmaker's favorite.
