Thompson Cash

He reports $9.3M raised in the the third quarter ( below Rudy’s $11 million [$10.5 primary money] and Romney’s $10 million, but remember this is Romney’s third quarter and it gets tougher as you go along). This gets added to his June total for $12.7 to date with $7M cash on hand (behind Romney but not by that much). There is no breakdown yet on what portion of Thompon’s money is available for the primary and what is general election money but I will update once the campaign responds to my inquiry. Critics will say where’s the groundswell? Supporters will say hey, we’re about where Romney is in terms of on cash on hand without spending a lot of the candidate’s own money. (Romney has had to kick in more with each succeeding quarter going from $2.4M to $6.5M to $8.5M.) The best number for Thompson: 80,000 donors. The reality: he’s got enough money to be competitive. Now he has to go win some early states.

UPDATE: Thompson press folks confirm all of Thompson’s figures are primary money.
