Cain Surpasses Fundraising Goals
Herman Cain’s presidential campaign raised over $1 million each week since October 1, far outpacing their original fundraising goals, spokesman J.D. Gordon told Business Insider
“Grassroots donations have comprised a significant portion of those funds,” Gordon said.
The October totals already exceed the $2.8 million raised from June to September.
But, despite the recent surge in fundraising, the Cain campaign has come under scrutiny recently for his positions on abortion and foreign policy issues.
“The abortion blunder was inexplicable,” Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said on Fox News Sunday. “It doesn’t walk it back when you say it ought to be the person’s choice but it is also illegal. I’m sorry — that doesn’t help. I suspect Herman Cain may have peaked and may begin to decline.”
