Perry campaign aide loses hair over fundraising

(CNN) - Texas Governor Rick Perry's campaign is losing hair over fundraising, literally.

Perry's Political Director David White and Central Texas Field Director Jon McClellan challenged each other to see who could raise the most money for the Perry campaign in a 24-hour period. The loser had to receive a buzz-cut.

In last 24 hours, White and McClellan raised more than $15,000 together, said Perry's press secretary, Alejandro Garcia. Garcia could not specify how much each participant raised individually but confirmed that McClellan did receive a buzz-cut.

On Tuesday, the Perry campaign started a "money cannon" in the hope of raising $300,000 in one day, according to the Perry campaign's website. Wednesday was the fundraising deadline for the "money cannon."
