\ Other things to look for will be Sen. John McCain’s fundraising and what sort of bump it got in December, as he was creeping back up in the polls. Unfortunately, the numbers won’t include his performance post-New Hampshire.\

\ Ron Paul has already announced he raised more than $19.5 million in the fourth quarter, nearly $8 million more than the target his campaign said it needed to run the ads necessary to compete in Iowa, New Hampshire and beyond.\


\ We don’t know much else for sure. Newsweek reported that Mike Huckabee raised about $8 million in the fourth quarter, and Rudy Giuliani‘s campaign said it raised $15 million and had $7 million cash on hand.\

\ But Giuliani’s senior aides have given up their paychecks for this month to help him conserve his resources, and Huckabee has reportedly cut his staff as well to try to stay competitive.\
