Senator Ted Cruz raised significantly more money in the final three months of the year while Ben Carson maintained his pace in fund-raising during that period, according to numbers released by the Republican presidential hopefuls’ campaigns.
Mr. Cruz and Mr. Carson were the first of the 2016 candidates to release broad-stroke details of how much money they raised during the fourth and final quarter of the year. The full filings, with details on donors and the amounts spent by the campaigns, are not required to be submitted to the Federal Election Commission until Jan. 31.
Mr. Cruz, who has been rising in polls, particularly in Iowa, raised nearly $20 million from October through the end of the year, according to a memo released Wednesday by his campaign. The figures were intended to show a muscular operation that can convert money into votes, with the total representing a two-thirds increase over the $12.2 million that Mr. Cruz reported raising from July through the end of September.
“We will conclude 2015 with having raised over $45 million,” Mr. Cruz’s campaign manager, Jeff Roe, wrote in a memo that also laid out the campaign’s number of volunteers, its fund-raising leaders in crucial regions and its overall preparedness for the long nominating contest ahead, which starts with voting in Iowa a month from now.Read the rest of the story HERE and Follow a link below to Cruz's Warning to his supporters:
