Giuliani raises $11 million in 3Q

Giuliani greets a potential supporter on the campaign trail.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani raised $11 million in third quarter campaign funding raising, the Giuliani campaign told CNN, edging rival Mitt Romney.

Giuliani, a Republican presidential candidate, raised $11 million during the three-month period that ended on September 30, the campaign said. About $10.5 million can be used in the primary race while the rest must be saved for the general election.

At the end of the quarter, Giuliani's campaign had $16 million in cash on hand.

That is slightly more than what fellow Republican Mitt Romney during that same period. Romney raised raised $10 million, his campaign announced Thursday.

    Is this an indication that money is flowing to the Dems at the rate of 2.7 to 1 for the Repubs?

    Comparing with other candidates, Giuliani has taken a long time to come out with the amount of funds raised for the 3rd quarter. That shows their inefficiency or poor campaign organization.

    So, he now only has $27 million ($16M carryover from prior quarters, plus $11M now). But that is far below what Hillary has $72 million ($45M + $27M).

    This shows that he has not convinced the republican supporters to give him money, or that these supporters think that he is not electable, i.e., he cannot beat Hillary in the next election.

    Not only has he raised less money than Hillary, he also had a higher burnt rate (amount spent) of about 50% for $1 raised, versus Hillary's burnt rate of 29%, based on the first 2 quarters. Obmaa had 40%.

    On the other hand, the leading republicans had very high burnt rate (Romney 70% and McCain 80%). That is bad, as they can run out of money quick before the nomination date.

    This clearly demonstrates the Democrats dominance in raising money. Even the so-called #2 top Democrat (Obama) leads significantly over the top 1 and 2 Republicans combined. Forget party nominations. This should be a race b/t/w Obama vs Hillary.

    So what! I think the bigger news is the fact that Obama is only $1 million behind hillary in tottal cash raised. I mean she is soooo far ahead of everyone i dont understand why "WE" are donating to the Obama campaign! Ohh i know CNN and there media spin. I know hillary has a hand in your pockets its not hard to tell that.

    And yet he is currently leading all fellow Republican candidates and running neck and neck with Hillary in national polling.

    Must be doing something right.

    Doesn't he sort of look like Popeye's brother?

    With recent polls showing Clinton slowly inching ahead of Giuliani, Rudy will need every penny of this money to make the race even competitive. Check out today's Florida poll

    Gregg AZ: You must not have seen the latest polls. Hillary leads him in New York and the rest of the country. The people in N.Y. know what a crook he is.

    How sure are you that he is leading Republican candidates? Depending on whose poll results you look at, you might find Ron Paul at the top of those polls. How many total contributors did Giuliani have compared to the total number of contributors that Paul had, that is the import question to most Americans.

    – – – – –

    When the only people challenging Hillary on the campaign trail are Mrs Edwards and Mike Gravel – Hillary doesn't have to spend money.

    For all the years of blathering about "King George" – this coronation of Hillary is literally the closest thing I've ever seen to the Royal treatment in this country.

    The DNC machine, George Soros et al must have all the other Democratic candidates scared stiff to quietly allow Hillary's nomination without mounting any serious charges against her.

    Hey Greg – maybe you should check out the actual polls – look at Rasmussen and the newest ABC News poll – both show Clinton with a nice lead over Ghouliani.. I believe the ABC poll shows her up 51-43.... not quite neck and neck, now is it

    Lets face it – if it weren't for 911, Ghouliani wouldn't even be competitive in the repub primary, much less the general election. he is a one trick pony and will get exposed in the general election... if he makes it that far

    he is a frontrunner solely on name alone. Strip away 9/11 from him...and essentially he is a liberal democrat.

    The more people find out about what kind of scum he is, the more people will abandon his campaign.

    And when compare front runner percentages...you gotta remember that Democrats outnumber Republicans

    Of COURSE he is leading all other Reps - have you listened to those other morons? Running neck and neck with Hillary? Look again – she will crucify him in ANY debate!

    Traditionally, Republicans outraise the Democrats 2 for 1. So, it is very interesting that in this election the Democrats are so far ahead than the Republicans. Could it be due to voter disatisfaction with the GOP?

    Take away the money that Mitt is donating to his own campaign (I believe that call that "Kerryism") – Giuliani would be 6 million in front of him – people don't want the right (all the Republicans except Giuliani) and people don't want the left (all the Democrats....except Hillary who is a socialist) – we have been wanting a financial conservative..and social liberal for a long time....and we have one in Giuliani (who will win – big time!)

    Giuliani or Thompson are the only candidates that make sense for our country right now. Both would control Congressional spending, both would increase military security and both would continue tax cuts for all Americans equally. I would think both are also interested in securing the borders against the flow of illegals through Mexico.

    CNN You need to start giving equal coverage to all the candidates. Ron Paul is very popular and would be more so if he was actually covered somewhere than the internet as would all the other smaller candidates. Start being part of the solution in this country then part of the problem...
