How about this, MSM:
58,407 individual donors
24,915 first time donors
$102 average contribution
Okay, I wonder if any other candidate can inspire this sort of commitment? I mean, these contributors aren't big-wig corp execs who can drop 2300 bucks on a whim, these are people who are wondering if they can give $25 more and still feed their family from week to week.
Trust me, I know these people. We had around 1000 people out for a Tea Party on Ladybird Lake in Austin, TX that fabled Sunday afternoon. They come from all walks of life: young, old, African-American, white, Asian-American, Hispanic-American, high incomes, middle incomes, lower incomes - they are all there.
Why is this? Because freedom is popular. Because liberty brings dignity wherever you are in life. Because the message is universal.
So go jump, MSM. Get ready for some mega-blowback.
