Cain’s Fundraising Boom


Last quarter, Herman Cain raised $2.8 million.

But his surge in the polls has also created a surge in donations: he’s been raking in over $1 million a week every week this month so far, reports NBC News

Some skeptical about Cain’s ability to stay a top-tier candidate have pointed to Mitt Romney’s and Rick Perry’s significant funds as one reason why Cain can’t remain competitive. (Romney had $14.7 million cash on hand at the end of the third quarter, while Perry had $15 million.) But if Cain keeps raising at this rate, that particular criticism might become moot.
