McCain - $7 million in contributions since announcing Gov. Sarah Palin as running mate
McCain Gets $7 Million Bounce from Palin Pick
By Matthew Mosk
Sen. John McCain has taken in $7 million in contributions since announcing Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, a top campaign aide said today.
The money bounce may owe to Palin's appeal with conservative donors, many of whom said privately they had planned on sitting out the campaign this year. The money comes in just under the wire -- after McCain accepts the GOP nomination Thursday, he will accept public funds and no longer be permitted to raise private money for the campaign.
United Indeed! The dems can say what they want, but Palin has fired up the base and look at that money in 24 hours....Someone said Obama gave a speech Thursday..anyone remember? LOL
