Fundraising Begins Slowly for GOP Candidates

Though the campaigns are not required to disclose their campaign filings publicly until July 15, the New York Times has preliminary reports on second quarter fundraising:

Mitt Romney "will report raising less than $20 million for the Republican primary."

Tim Pawlenty rasied less than $5 million, "some of which may be earmarked for a future general election campaign" and not avilable for the GOP primaries.

Jon Huntsman raised about $4.1 million for the quarter "though a substantial portion came from his own fortune."

Ron Paul raised about $4 million "and hoped to raise more by the end of the day."
