Frontrunning Republican candidates may well remember the 5th of November as the day Ron Paul officially caught up to them. After a surprisingly well-funded 3rd quarter, grass roots organizers chose Guy Fawkes Day as the day for a lot of people to each give a little to the freedom-preaching Texas Congressman. The effort was massively successful, as neo-Paul-itans (trademark) roused some 37,000 supporters to donate on the occasion, netting a whopping $4.2 million for Paul’s presidential campaign, and setting the Republican single day fundraising record. Call this Ron Paul snowball an avalanche.
