John McCain raised more than $8.8 million in the two days after he announced that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin would join him on the Republican ticket -- his biggest two-day haul of the long-running presidential campaign.
The Republican National Committee collected $4.5 million the day McCain selected Palin, newly filed Federal Election Commission reports show.
McCain's decision to tap the then-little-known politician excited the Republican rank and file, helping him raise about $2.1 million in increments of less than $1,000 in two days.
Altogether, McCain raised $6.8 million Aug. 30, the day after the Palin announcement, and $2 million the next day. Until then, McCain had never topped $2 million in a single day in this presidential campaign, the Federal Election Commission data show.
McCain raised $47.5 million in August, his most successful month. He also spent $40.5 million, including $18.1 million for advertising and $5.4 million for mailings.

little known because these reporters never read conservetive blogs.
When you accuse a reporter as liberal bias, they probably deny it...ask them if they visit liberal blogs...then ask them if they visit conservative blogs
From an email I got recently.
I urgently need you to redouble your commitment to our cause by making a secure online contribution of $2,000, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25 to provide RNC Victory 2008 the backing it needs as we begin the General Election campaign in earnest.
We need to raise $50 million for Victory 2008 in September alone to keep pace with the Obama-Biden Democrats. These funds are critically important for voter identification, organization and get-out-the-vote efforts that will make all the difference between winning and losing on Election Day.
Remember, in 2000 and 2004, the difference in the election was just a handful of votes in a few precincts in key states. When you consider that $50 is about what it costs to turn-out 150 voters, you can see how every contribution matters.
So please make a secure online contribution of $2,000, $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25 to RNC Victory 2008 to help our Party kick-off the General Election phase of the campaign with the greatest strength possible.
donate folks...and volunteer...I am doing that tomorrow.
