Another Paul constituency, interestingly enough, comes from the military. A study by the Center for Responsive Politics found Paul received more campaign cash from members of the military than any other Republican presidential candidate.So, in an ironic twist, the very troops pro-war conservatives say we should support are supporting the candidate conservatives hate the most.
The study of contributions of $200 and more during the first two quarters shows that Paul has raised three times as much from members of the military as what's been raised by GOP fundraising front-runner Romney, and four times what Giuliani garnered.
That's great news. But this story also shows that the mainstream media is no longer able to ignore Ron Paul -- and that can only mean trouble for warmongering frontrunners.
