Just got off of a Giuliani campaign conference call providing more details on the financing numbers. Campaign manager Mike DuHaime said Rudy has $10.8 million cash on hand available for the primary, and that he raised $15.4 million for the primary (and $16.6 million overall). He had 28,356 donors, 64% of which are less than $100, and he raised almost $1 million on the Internet. The campaign touted the fact that Giuliani raised 2/3 of the money in March, and in response to my question, DuHaime said the campaign expects to keep up a “March-like pace” as far as fundraising events, from now on. Finance chair Roy Bailey said the challenge is “catching up to the popularity of Rudy” in terms of building an organization. Also, DuHaime again declined to say whether Giuliani will participate in the Ames Straw poll in Iowa, said they would compete in the caucus, but would have to “evaluate” Ames.
