The Fifth of November

It has begun. In the first 20 minutes after midnight, Ron Paul raised his daily haul of $65000. It's 2:07 now, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down too much.
The donor rate is about 1000 per hour now, so there'll be plenty left to donate throughout the day. I expect we'll see another big spike in the morning, and a large hump around 5, when people return from work.
Here's to hoping for $3 million with change -- with the present rate, this is going to be a new record, if it already isn't one.

effin' a!

I have been looking forward to this all week, and we're doing better than I had hoped in just the first 3 hours! It was amazing to see the west coast come online! Congrats to all on being a part of history tonight! RON PAUL 2008!!!

I'm planning to donate this morning. Tip: I'm not totally familiar with which website to look at to donate. Maybe putting a fixed link somewhere could help?

Thanks. I know it was a stupid question and all, but anything to point people in the right direction can't hurt. Just did my donation and it feels good.

'As you can imagine, we receive thousands of messages a day....'

Its longer and full of crap

Sorry, will get the info AND the link in this time.

I would like to suggest that each of us, and other supporters take a few minutes to email so called major media to insist that this amazing event in support of Ron Paul be covered, and not marginalized. No matter who the candidate might be, such an event is newsworthy, period.

Tell two friends, and they'll tell two friends, and so on, and so on, and so on.....

Here's a handy dandy list to help make it happen.

Hi guys,
Here's a short do-able contact list of a newspaper or 2 from each key primary state. I tried to pick the one's with the most coverage by checking with wiki... if you have any better ideas, add on to this...... be sure to pass on the message!!! (can copy and paste this one, or write another)...

Thanks everybody!!!!!!

Apparently, money begets media coverage; media coverage begets money.

This November 5th puts Ron Paul WELL into the upward cycle of exceeding the top-tier candidates.

I have donated twice and plan to donate more before the day is over.

Can you come on our show tomorrow to discuss this? We air on the Republic Broadcasting network - http://www.republicbroadcasting.org/ - from 9-10 am central time.

Call into the board operator and just tell them you are with Ron Paul Cash Tracker - 800-313-9443.

Thanks for all the hard work!!!

Geez, it's about $5K per *minute right now. (head a splodes)

We just have to make the news - that's the main goal. I read somewhere that Romney holds the record for Republicans of 3.1 mil. in one day. If we can beat that, it's news! Since the party affiliation change dates are upon us, we really need the coverage. Give until it hurts! Haha

joe said...

Keep up the great work!

Richie said...

Fantastic work all!!! And just think, along with the thrill of raising it, Dr. Paul gets to spend the money as well!

viridari said...

It looks like we did $4M for Ron Paul in the 24 hours of 11/5/2007 eastern time zone.

I imagine more money will keep coming in as it's still 11/5 elsewhere in the US right now.

Ron Paul raises 4.2 million!!!!!
