Ted Cruz Amasses Enormous Fundraising Stockpile Throughout 2013
Breitbart ^ | 31 Jan 2014 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 02/01/2014 5:45:14 AM PST by SoConPubbie

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced Friday that throughout 2013 his three campaign arms raised $4.16 million.

Cruz made the massive haul over 2013 through his re-election committee, Ted Cruz for Senate, his joint fundraising committee, Ted Cruz Victory Committee, and his leadership PAC, the Jobs, Growth & Freedom Fund.

About $1.5 million of this fundraising happened in the fourth quarter of 2013. This began during the government shutdown caused by Democrats’ and President Obama’s refusal to compromise on Obamacare after Cruz’s stand, with Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) at his side, against the unpopular healthcare law. Conventional wisdom inside the beltway was that Americans disapproved of Cruz’s and Lee’s tactics, but these fundraising details are yet another indicator that ordinary Americans craved someone who would stand up against Obamacare on their behalf.

“Sen. Cruz’s fourth quarter fundraising numbers are another indication that people across Texas and America are eager to rise up and make DC listen,” Cruz's chief strategist Jason Johnson said in a statement announcing the numbers. “Thousands and thousands of patriots are putting their money where their mouth is – they’re the ones who are going to save our country, not the Washington Establishment.”

Cruz had received more than 44,500 individual donations last year, more than 41,000 of which were from people who donated less than $100. Almost 30,000 of those donors were first-time donors in 2013, his campaign said.

. . .

Cruz is widely considered to be a likely 2016 presidential candidate, and these fundraising numbers – especially the hauls from small donors, and enthusiastic support from the grassroots – will only help his case to become the GOP nominee should he run. Perhaps more impressive is that Cruz was able to make this big haul while only in his first year in the United States Senate.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Good news. Does anyone know how SarahPAC did for the year?

I quit giving to the Republican party directly about 4 years ago. Now we give to ONLY candidates or conservative groups....The Republican party keeps calling and writing, asking for money.

He only needs about a billion more. I wonder if it’s possible to do honestly.

Good news! I wonder how this compares to faux Conservative John Cornball’s war chest. You know, the one funded by BIG $$ cronies.

Thanks.

Yikes! $10M for Cornball. That’s his 2009 - 14 numbers. If I’m reading correctly.
