Perry Fundraising Dries Up

Rick Perry's fundraising efforts have run into trouble amidst a series of debate gaffes and poor poll numbers, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"Perry's associates and supporters say his campaign has redoubled its money-­raising efforts in the past week to ensure that his campaign will have enough money to survive the first three contests of the 2012 election calendar... But Perry's loyal backers are running into resistance from Republican donors. One Perry fundraiser, who asked not to be named, said he received 15 RSVPs for a recent event from potential donors saying they might attend. But after a gaffe-marred Perry debate performance, none showed up... Another Perry fundraiser said he expects the Texas governor to raise between $3 million and $5 million in the final three months of 2012 -- less than one-third of what he generated in the first six weeks of his candidacy."
