El Teddo might be slightly short in the polls (at least his fingers aren’t as short* as Trump’s) but he’s definitely rockin’ it in the fundraising department, which should ensure that he’ll be in the race for a while to come.
From el Hillo:
Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) presidential campaign on Sunday reported raising over $20 million in the last 3 months of 2015.
The strong fundraising effort allowed the campaign to start 2016 with $18.7 million on hand.
Of the funds raised in the final stretch of 2015, about 42 percent came from small-dollar donations of less than $200.
The campaign also was not shy about spending its funds as it sought to establish a presence in Iowa, as it spent $15.5 million in those three months.
The Rubio campaign also showed some yuge fundraising gains, as they reported $14 million, nearly twice as much as the previous period.
