Ron Paul raises 1.2M in 7 days

He (we) did it. Ron Paul raised over $1.2M in seven days, far exceeding the original goal of $500k. This is good news for the campaign and improves the chances that more people will get to hear his message as a result.

An MSNBC politics blog has a favorable report of RP's recent New Hampshire rally, which went very well.

It was a family walk and RP was joined by 30 of his family members [source]. Unlike the other candidates he doesn't continually shove his family into the public eye for political gain.

Because of his humility and respect for privacy you might not know that he has five children, eighteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild. He just celebrated his golden anniversary [source].

Now that's living what you believe, without wearing it on your sleeve.

Props to a Boston Globe article for covering this story.
