Ron Paul's campaign sees $$ signs

Ron Paul is set to have a big fundraising quarter.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has raised $8.1 million since October 1, nearly doubling the amount he had raised over the first three quarters of the year, according to his campaign.

The Texas congressman received a total of $8.2 million in donations from when his campaign began earlier this year to September 30, his campaign said.

Claims by Paul's campaign that it has raised $8.1 million over the last month and a half, cannot be verified by CNN until fourth quarter reports are filed with the Federal Election Commission on December 31.

Dr. Paul's campaign raised a few eyebrows in Washington last week when it announced that it had raised $4.2 million in just 24 hours, on November 5. Since that announcement, the campaign has received another $1 million in donations online, his campaign announced Tuesday.

    My mother and I both pledged $100 for the December 16th Tea Party and I'm working on the rest of my family as well! This is our man! I have never in my 45 years felt so positive about a presidential candidate! Ron Paul speaks for those Americans who, up until now, have not had a voice in our government. If you don't like the idea of a North American Union – get behind Ron Paul!

    I like it when Ru Paul stammers and stutters in the "debates." Ru Paul will not win the Presidency.

    You've mis-spelled his name dear.

    It is Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul will win the presidency.

    If not I will come to your house and cook you some top ramen, cause that will be all you can afford to eat.

    Really now, does any other candidate, especially Republican, get this kind of dedication:

    Ron Paul may in fact be the real American's last hope. America needs to get back to it's founding fathers roots. The beliefs which the Constitution is founded on.

    Ron Paul will guide us to do this.
