(CNN) – A super PAC supporting Ben Carson, a renowned neurosurgeon and a popular figure among conservatives, pulled in an impressive $3.3 million fundraising haul in the second quarter of this year.
The National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee said Tuesday its recent fundraising success brings the group's total to more than $7 million.
The group said the blockbuster quarter is evidence that the American people want Carson as their GOP nominee.
"The tremendous outpouring of donations and words of support clearly shows that people are clamoring for a principled, unifying leader like Dr. Carson in the White House. We will continue to do all we can to encourage him to run for president," said John Philip Sousa IV, the group's national chairman.
Much of the impressive fundraising haul has come through email and direct mail pitches.
Carson remains coy about running, and has not ruled out a presidential bid. He won conservative acclaim last year when he criticized Democratic policies on taxes and health care while giving the keynote address at the National Prayer Breakfast.
He's continued to be a popular voice for right-leaning ideals.
