Ron Paul’s campaign raised $13 million in the last three months of the year. The impressive figure comes after he took in $8 million during the third quarter. The cash flow will allow the Texas congressman to compete through later primaries and caucuses. Because he has the most loyal donor base – the cause of liberty primarily motivates them, not access or perks – he should be able to continue raising substantial sums in the wake of his third-place finish in Tuesday’s Iowa caucuses.

Only Mitt Romney will be able to post a higher number. Sources told us just before Christmas it will be $20+ million.
