In Q1, Mike Huckabee’s fundraising team disappointed. Looks like he did it in Q2 also:

Republican Mike Huckabee raised $764,000 for his presidential campaign from April through June and had $437,000 cash on hand at the end of last month, according to financial reports filed Sunday.

The former Arkansas governor spent nearly $703,000 during those three months. More than half went for payroll, travel, and media and fundraising consultants.

Compare that with Sam Brownback, who more than doubled that:

Senator Sam Brownback reports raising nearly $1.5 million for his presidential bid in the last three months.

That’s about $200,000 more than the Kansas Republican reported in the previous quarter.

However, Ron Paul is still the 2nd-tier Q2 winner.

Ron Paul vs. Rudy Giuliani kind of reminds me of Keith Olberman vs. Bill O’Reilly. All the money/notarity Paul (and Keith) have acquired is due do ankle-bighting. If you want an anti-war GOPer to run tap Chuck Hagel.

[…] The first reason is that he got a bump. A big one. He will be able to raise money off this, which has been his problem in both Q1 and Q2. He also got headlines. People will take a first or second look at him. […]
