The Amount of Money Ted Cruz Raked in for the 4th Quarter is YUGE!

Ted Cruz

Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, a constitutional conservative, announced on Wednesday that his campaign has raised a whopping $20 million during that past three months, a testimony to a campaign many pundits, even liberal ones (here and here) are calling virtually flawless in its execution.

The $20 million raised in the final quarter of the year represents an increase from the third quarter haul of $12.2 million. More impressively, the Cruz campaign announced that more than 300,000 supporters have donated an average of $67, meaning that Cruz’s cash haul is mostly motivated individuals from the grassroots who are likely to show up at voting time.

The donor base resides in two-thirds of all zip codes in the United States, according to the Cruz campaign, an indication of wide geographic support across the nation.

“Some campaigns are focused solely on a man, some on a movement. Ours is a hybrid of the two built to win,” wrote Ted Cruz for President campaign manager Jeff Roe in a memo to campaign staffers. “There’s still plenty of work to be done to make Ted the Republican nominee and the next President, but as 2015 comes to a close, we are exactly where we want to be. Go. Fight. Win. This is OUR time!” Roe wrote.

Cruz’s campaign has impressively placed coordinators in all 163 congressional districts in the 24 states with primaries or caucuses scheduled prior to March 15. Additionally, the Cruz campaign claims to have over 175,000 campaign volunteers.

Yesterday, former New York Governor George Pataki dropped out of the race, leaving twelve in the still-crowded GOP field.

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz run in first and second place in all recent national GOP presidential polls.
