Romney recauda 3.5 millones por internet en las 24 horas posteriores a la presentación de Ryan

Andrea Saul, portavoz de Team Romney, anuncia en twitter:


Supera los 3 millones que la campaña esperaba obtener este primer día. No llega a los 7 millones que recaudó McCain en las 24 horas posteriores a la histórica selección de Palin. Aunque aquel fue un caso fuera de lo normal y probablemente inigualable.

En lo que Ryan puede aportar más que Palin es en las grandes donaciones. Y Boston ya ha fijado en su agenda 10 recaudaciones de fondos antes de la convención. El objetivo es mantener el buen ritmo recaudatorio en agosto, un mes que suele ser históricamente malo para las campañas en cuanto a recaudación.
Mitt Romney‘s running mate will headline 10 fundraising events from Aug. 13 to 25, according to a vice presidential fundraising schedule. That means Mr. Ryan is currently scheduled to peel off before the bus tour ends in order to make it to Denver Monday evening for a dinner fundraiser. The bus tour is slated to wrap up on Tuesday.

(...) Mr. Ryan’s upcoming schedule is largely packed with battleground states — a fundraising breakfast in Cleveland, Ohio, for instance, and dinners in Virginia, Florida and New Hampshire.

There are also some states on the list where the Romney campaign has barely begun battling but hopes to make inroads. Later this month Mr. Ryan is slated to attend a Philadelphia fundraiser as well as one in Detroit. While Mr. Romney has little chance of winning such urban centers, his campaign hopes to bite into Mr. Obama’s lead in some of the nearby suburbs.

Not wanting to waste any time capitalizing on the pick, Messers. Romney and Ryan will also join a fundraising call with top donors Sunday.
