Will try to get more breakdown, but here’s the release:
The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee reported today it has outraised every other Republican campaign and has over $18 million cash on hand. The campaign raised over $17 million in the second quarter, for both the primary and general election, and ended the quarter with zero debt.
The second quarter fundraising totals highlighted the Giuliani campaign’s growing momentum and commitment to discipline and efficiency with campaign dollars.
The campaign both outraised first quarter totals by more than $2 million and doubled the number of individual donors. Contributions have been received from all fifty states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia.
“We are thrilled by our fundraising this quarter and are running a strong and efficient campaign. We are well positioned to win both the primary and the general elections,” said Giuliani Campaign Manager Michael DuHaime, “and we are serious about being good stewards with the money that has been entrusted to us.”
Deputy Campaign Manager Anne Dunsmore added, “Since joining Team Rudy, I have been increasingly encouraged by the response to Rudy’s message across the country. That strong support translates into an increase in the number of events, donors and dollars which will allow us not only to compete and win the primary, but to win the general election.”
UPDATE: It is important to note that Romney’s $14 million was for the primary alone, so I’m still trying to find out how much of Giuliani’s $17 million raised, and $18 million cash on hand, is for the primary, and how much is for the general. Either way, looks like a solid quarter for Rudy relative to his GOP rivals, but Republicans still have their work cut out for them to catch up to Obama.
UPDATE II: Giuliani spokeswoman Maria Comella told me about $15 million was for the primary. Also the cash on hand for the primary is $15 million. So, by any monetary measure, Giuliani is now ahead of Romney. However, Comella also told me that Giuliani has 57,000 contributors, which would put him behind the 72,000 of McCain and roughly 80,000 of Romney.
