Ron Paul, onetime Libertarian presidential nominee and current Republican presidential candidate, raised over $1 million for his campaign in the past week (the end of the third quarter). He may not get the press that some of the other candidates do, but he’s certainly not about to give up. There’s something about an underdog I find fascinating – whether or not you agree with their position, you can’t help but cheer them on a bit (maybe that’s just me, though – I always enjoy rooting for the underdog in sports…upsets are fun).
