TED CRUZ AMASSES ENORMOUS FUNDRAISING STOCKPILE THROUGHOUT 2013

“Sen. Cruz’s fourth quarter fundraising numbers are another indication that people across Texas and America are eager to rise up and make DC listen,” Cruz's chief strategist Jason Johnson said in a statement announcing the numbers. “Thousands and thousands of patriots are putting their money where their mouth is – they’re the ones who are going to save our country, not the Washington Establishment.”
Cruz had received more than 44,500 individual donations last year, more than 41,000 of which were from people who donated less than $100. Almost 30,000 of those donors were first-time donors in 2013, his campaign said.
...Cruz is widely considered to be a likely 2016 presidential candidate, and these fundraising numbers – especially the hauls from small donors, and enthusiastic support from the grassroots – will only help his case to become the GOP nominee should he run. Perhaps more impressive is that Cruz was able to make this big haul while only in his first year in the United States Senate.
