Herman Cain has raised more than $3 million in the month of October, campaign strategist Mark Block told CNN. Continue Reading
"Its over $3 million," Block said in an interview with Erin Burnett. "Were well over 65,000 [donors.] So weve actually doubled in little over a month. Thats what were seeing in our grassroots activism growth and obviously in the YouTube thing."
The "YouTube thing" refers, of course, to this.
Cain's $3 million intake is more than he raised in the whole third quarter of the year, and gives him resources to spring for paid media and step up his presence in the early primary states. If he wants to do that at some point.

Fox just reported $5m on the radio.
Chickenpoop compared to what Perry and Romney are raising.
Herman stopped off near us today in Anniston, Alabama. Did not have the chance to go down and see him. Article is on front page of the Annistonstar.com.
No, it isn’t.
After the irs is abolished, I’ll gladly accept 999.
OK, General...inform the rest of us what Perry & Romney raised in October...I’m sure you can ask your staff to come up this fairly quickly!
Reagan had the advantage have run before. The GOP almost always goes with the guy who ran before. Of course money isn’t the only factor. If it was Gov. Meg Whitman would be running CA today.
It’s over 9000!
...but seriously, this is great. I’ve tried to make small donations when I can. With any luck, the Cain Train will keep gaining speed.
“Chickenpoop compared to what Perry and Romney are raising.”
hmmm, that’s what Karl Rove said..
He’s been running ads on Rush’s show locally.
campaign strategist Mark Block told CNN.
You can’t believe a smoker. (/s)
and, will again.
That is actually nationally! Some ads are directly from the Rush Limbaugh program and Cains’ is one of them.
To spite Rove I made a donation to Cain today!
Herman Cain will spend his contributions wisely - because they come from individuals - from voters. You know the types - those who work for wages - the people whom Herman Cain knows and appreciates.
He doesn’t think it’s chickenshit.
Your comment was offensive.
The wonderful event that we are seeing is that people/voters are examining the candidates and settling in on Cain. Those who started elsewhere are moving to Herman and won't be moved. His support is grass roots and strong. He will win because the people not the inside the beltway are for him.
I won't vote for Romney.
HAVE raised. I suspect Perry is raising pennies now that he dropped to single digits in all the polls. And Romney money has more to do with his $190 million inherited bank account then anything honest.
Heard his ad on Rush today in New Hampshire.
neither will id vote for romulan.
...but seriously, this is great. Ive tried to make small donations when I can. With any luck, the Cain Train will keep gaining speed.
Not to worry. Cain instinctively has one thing that all the money in the world cannot buy for any candidate, a message that resonates with We The People.
Through 09/30/11 Romney had raised $18,449,060. At that time he was reporting cash on hand at $14,656,966
The FEC report for Cain for 09/30/11 was that he had raised $5,380,841. His cash on hand was $1,333,779.
The Cain camp is reporting $3,000,000+ raised since that time. That is a very significant increase in cash and while much lower over all than Romney, is not “chickenpoop”.
Oh boohoo. I remain unimpressed. Romney now leads in the five states that go first. Cain polls well to be sure. But his 999 is pure fodder for BHO and his endless classwarfare caca. GOP primary voters will most likely go with Romney after the dust is settled. My views are closest to Bachmann’s but I try to look at it realistically.
I don’t like the Rush ads or that one with the guy smoking... seriously Cain needs to hire better ad people.
Perry’s ads rock, it’s a shame he is such a flawed candidate.
Maybe Cain could hire Perry’s ad people :)
I want to see some other polls to see how Romeny and Cain do in Iowa, South Carolina and Florida. I know the CNN/Time poll is showing Romeny leading. But I really want to see other polls as well. I understand Romeny has a big lead in NH, close to his base. But Romney is leading by 3 in SC? Hard to believe.
I should mention that I am also not counting ‘88, as Bush the Elder was the sitting VP for a popular incumbent. If you really want George the Elder included, that makes it four out of five, not three out of four.
I want to donate as soon as it is financially responsible for me to do so (i.e., when my credit card billing cycle resets). A number of your links in post 14 don’t work, though.
General....please refer to my post #8 and answer my question.
It has almost been one hour and I have not yet heard your response; meanwhile, you have responded to other Freepers, who have posted subsequent to my question to you.
I realize your staff is probably overburdened with other important stuff to do, but you made the assertion...now back it up!
Ok, I’ll get em fixed right now. Which links ain’t working?

Perry needs good ad people, because I saw the live announcement of “Cut, Balance, and Grow”, and it was, in a word, awful. The ad people made it look 10,000 times better than it was Live.
(And don’t forget the smoking man thing was not an ad — it was a message to Cain supporters, sent out via email, that ended up going viral and getting air time that was not the original intent.)
My guess would be that Cain will use a combination of conventional and unconventional ads at some point. Some people need a polished and professional ad because those ads will be all they see of candidates. Some people don’t do any of their own homework when it comes to elections. So some polished and professional ads will be a wise investment. But the “We The People” stuff seems to be working pretty good so far as well.
This is really frustrating a wysiwyg editor for FR would help... FR is mangling the links. *sigh* I hate having to guess how FR is going to change it.
I agree that at this point the best ads in the world are not going to help Perry, but I still think Cain needs to up his game in the ad area.
This link works for me.
The General’s boss, one Mr Mittens has assigned him many time consuming duties. Do not hold your breath waiting for an answer.
To all interested parties, der yeneral appears to have gone into bannedland.
Yep, totally agree.
I’m sure it will happen now that there is some cash. If his campaign doesn’t make it happen, then that’s a mistake on their part.
