Two sources within the Cain campaign are telling me that although Mr. Cain was hit with sexual harassment accusations in the 90’s from two females who worked for him, when he was president of the National Restaurant Association, Monday’s online campaign fundraising for the campaign was the best ever up to this point.
Human Events is reporting that Cain Campaign Manager Mark Block says the campaign raised $250,000 in online donations in one day. However, the number turned out to be much higher than that. “We raised $400,000 in the last 24 hours,” Cain campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon told me Tuesday evening.
The Cain campaign sent a quote to the Water Cooler blog regarding Monday’s online money haul saying, “The campaign views the increased donations as an outcry of support for Herman and that the base is rallying around him.”
