Skip to comments.Reports: Rick Perry Raised $17,000,000 In 49 Days
Posted on 10/05/2011 6:20:36 AM PDT by Clairity
Both Hot Air and The Drudge Report are reporting that the Perry campaign will report that it raised a fairly impressive $17 million during the 49 days of the 3rd quarter that the campaign was active.
Ed Morrissey breaks the numbers down:
The pace is even more impressive. Perry had 49 days in which to raise funds, rather than the full 92 days of the quarter, a rate of about $349,000 a day. The final debate in September didn't hurt Perry's fundraising rate, either. In the 42 days prior to the Orlando debate, their rate was $323K per day; in the eight days following the Orlando debate, that escalated to $478K per day. Perry's on-line operation did well, too, drawing in $1.1 million - despite, as my source says, not driving contributions with their on-line ads.

Don't ask me...ask Jim.
The oil industry is just as corrupt as the two major political parties in this country. That's why Palin put their feet to the fire in Alaska and sent a couple of corrupt GOP hacks to jail up there. And it's why she beat Murkowski for governor in the first place, because together, the Alaska GOP and the oil companies were robbing the state blind.
Perhaps it’s from both the small donors as it was stated in one article I read and frustrated business owners who understand that Perry is pro business, pro tort reform, gutting the out of control EPA, pro drilling, free market solutions, repealing 0bamacare not just giving waivers like Romney has said he would do and border security which Perry’s governing record reflects.
Guess what, the TEA Party isn’t the only demographic out there that votes and detests what 0bama is doing to this country!
This election is still about the economy and jobs. It’s not about immigration, tardisil, painted rocks and whatever distracting argument people throw out there.
Bottom line it’s the economy stupid! all over again.
I read in the other thread on this that over 60% of that amount was donations of $250 or less.
So you could have one $1000 donation, nine $10 donations, and announce that 90% of donations are small, instead of pointing out that 90%+ of the money came from one fat-cat. They all do it. Be suspicious.
Are you paying royalties to the people from under whose properties you are extracting the natural gas? I doubt it.
What debates were YOU watching? What issues did he win on? Forced vaccinations of young girls? The lie about the poor lady who died from cervical cancer? The heartless lot of us Americans who don’t agree with his policies on illegals? Please.
Never mind what other, even more atrocious, candidates said about him. It’s what he said about himself that cost him.
And that's why his numbers fell off the cliff?
I can only ask *you* about “what you mean.”
And, again: it’s customary and polite to ping a person when you quote or refer to him.
I have news for you, the tea party conservatives aren’t the only legitimate voters who detest what 0bama is doing to this country and they are needed to defeat him in the general election. It is also going to take the big bucks to win since zer0 is wanting a $1 billion war chest.
Looks like it's Lowe's for me from now on.
Even in the case were the landowner does not have Mineral Rights, the land-use/Lease access agreement is very lucrative for the landowner.
Sorry to ruin your image of us you are selling, you thought we were stealing milk from babies and taking little old ladies walkers away from them so they can't get to church on Sunday. But there is hope for the insanely jealous after all, for those who seek it.
His numbers haven't fallen off the cliff in Texas.
I strongly disagree with your premise that Governor Perry is “bought and paid for.” He is under attack because he has proven the opposite.
Furthermore, you misrepresent those of us who support Governor Perry because he is pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-Constitution.
Our cause is simple: to restore the balance of power intended by our Founders but forsaken by secular progressives determined to say what government will do for the people rather than allowing people to do what they can do for themselves. Our goal is to take power away from Washington and instead empower states, communities, and individuals, because Americas future greatness is inextricably intertwined with states pushing back. p.16

Let me tell you a little story. I'm originally from Southwest Virginia, which is rich in coal and natural gas. About ten years ago, a prominent energy corporation cut a shady deal with the Board of Supervisors of my home county. The agreement was that the Supervisors would look the other way, in exchange for kick-backs, while the corporation's drillers moved deep into the mountains overnight and quietly began extracting natural gas using a sludge injection method. It was a virtual bonanza, and the operation went on for several years.
No property owners were notified about what was going on, nor given the opportunity to review the agreement nor claim royalties, and no one knew about it until after the deed was done and a lot of water wells went bad from the injected sludge. No one ever received any royalties and some bureaucrats and elected officials subsequently went to jail because of it.
My folks not only were robbed of the natural gas that sat under their property but lost their well because of the corruption of both our elected officials and the corporation.
So please pardon me when I decline to accept your rosy assertion at face value.
So the zero admin pays off HIS cronies and perry would pay off his. Which is better for this country? Corrupt unions that zero supports? Illegals working for big construction companies and developers that perry supports which got the sanctuary cities bill killed in Texas? laraza? cair? Red China? Cintra? You tell me. Seems to me, some of zero’s cronies are perry cronies as well.
Thanks for the article!
I was scrolling down the various posts in this thread, and I kept thinking: “Wow, don’t we get enough class warfare coming from Obama.. Now we have to listen to class-warfare comments from posters here on FR too!” LOL
Anyway, glad to see this. Thanks for posting!
What issues did he win on?
Forced vaccinations of young girls?
Forced? No one was.
The lie about the poor lady who died from cervical cancer?
Bachmann said that. Not Perry.
The heartless lot of us Americans who dont agree with his policies on illegals?
The state of Texas overwhelmingly approved instate tuition and Perry, like a good governor should, signed it. Perry is doing more than any other governor, in dealing with illegal immigration, doing what Obama should be doing.
Heartless, yes in a way. A student goes through 1st through 12th grade, his classmates go on to college, he can't, and you miles away, would take away his chance at a better life. All the while his family is working and building a better Texas.
Its what he said about himself that cost him.
Just what did he say about himself?
As Perry supporters on this forum showed, when Perry started getting slammed for his views, debate performance and issues their attempt at propping him up intensified. I think the money collected reflects that. Sending extra money was a way to show that he still had support. I will watch the next quarter as more and more begin to realize that the real support just isnt there.
>Forced vaccinations of young girls?
>>Forced? No one was.
But he tried.
>The lie about the poor lady who died from cervical cancer?
>>Bachmann said that. Not Perry.
Perry said that.
>The heartless lot of us Americans who dont agree with his policies on illegals?
>>The state of Texas overwhelmingly approved instate tuition and Perry, like a good governor should, signed it.
The PEOPLE of Texas didd NOT approve it and they still don’t.
The PEOPlE of Texas had no say in it at all.
>Its what he said about himself that cost him.
>>Just what did he say about himself?
All of the above.
