$1.2 Million + "Matching Contributions"

1.2 million dollars is the amount of money Ron Paul raised online this week in a drive that his campaign hoped would earn $500,000 in what was the last week of a campaign finance reporting quarter.

Based on the mainstream coverage of the Paul campaign's fundraising success last quarter, the $500,000 fundraiser was meant to be a decisive move that the campaign hoped would earn the candidate an estimated $10 million in free publicity, along with the success the candidate had in fundraising throughout the quarter.

For those who donated in this drive, the $10 million dollars in free publicity is akin to a 10 for 1 matching contribution.

More information on this can be found at the Ron Paul campaign website.
