• Q3 $ summary for active GOP candidates - RP a solid 3

    There are three ways of looking at the Q3 picture. The amount of "Money Raised" is a good indicator of support. The amount of "Cash on Hand" shows the liquid spending potential going forward. The amount of "Cash on Hand minus Debt" shows the bottom-line financial situation. Perry and Romney are (not surprisingly) 1st & 2nd in all categories. Ron Paul is a solid 3rd in all the calculation methods. I should also note, Bachman is above Cain in all the categories. Everyone else looks somewhat grim.
    Below I assembled the breakdown for all ten candidates, ranked in order using the three categories mentioned above. I figured it would be good to have this all in one place.
    [edit: I added "Money Spent" - just for fun. RP's spending is second to
    only Romney. This is logical since RP doesn't get the free media time. That's what BTO is all about, after all.]
