(CNN) - Herman Cain's campaign boasted a second gangbusters fundraising day Tuesday, saying in a release they had raised more than $400,000, enough to beat their single-day fundraising record.
The previous record was set Monday, when the campaign reported taking in $400,000. The campaign did not specify how much higher Tuesday's totals were from Monday's.
In a statement Wednesday, Cain chief-of-staff said the increased support would help the campaign move forward.
"This swelling of public support will help Herman continue spreading his message of real leadership and real problem solving across the country," Block said.
Block also took the opportunity to reiterate his claim that Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign was behind leaks to the media about the past sexual harassment claims.
"Since Politico released an attack story based on anonymous accusers, which was almost certainly provided to them by the Rick Perry campaign, Mr. Cain has taken the honorable path – he has been upfront and honest with the American people," Block said.
