Super Tuesday (2008), Super Duper Tuesday[1][2][3][4], Giga Tuesday, Tsunami Tuesday[5], and The Tuesday of Destiny are names for the day on which the largest-ever number of state U.S. presidential primary elections will be held on a single day, February 5, 2008.[6] Twenty-four states are scheduled to hold caucus or primary elections for one or both parties on this date.[7]

The large number of states holding elections on February 5 could shorten, to just a few weeks, the period between the first caucus in Iowa, on January 3, 2008, and the de facto selection of a party's nominee.[1] By way of comparison, by early February in the 2000 election cycle only about 2% of nominating convention delegates had been selected, whereas 2008 will see over 40% of the delegates chosen by early February.[8]

The only objective measure of fund raising success this year is if there is enough money to advertise in all twenty four states at once. If there is a media blackout of certain candidates, doubly so, because it is giving the media an enormous power to pick candidates since most candidates can't advertise that much all at once.

By an objective standard, how does our fund raising measure up?

Ron Paul HQ asked for twenty three million about a month ago.

Bump for doom and gloom, although I think this much could be donated, if everyone cared as much as they say.
