(TheRedWire.com) – GOP presidential candidates Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley have both announced that they each raised over $1 million within 24 hours following the third primary debate on Wednesday.
Last month, the third fundraising quarter filings gave a clearer idea of how the campaigns performed with one year to go until the election in November.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ campaign reported that they had raised $15 million; this included the funds raised by his leadership PAC, campaign, and joint fundraising committees. On Friday, the campaign announced that in the 24 hours since the Wednesday presidential debate, they had raised over $1 million in the 24 hours.
In a statement, his campaign added that this was another example of how their fundraising campaign was being accelerated during this quarter. They added that this also shows that the campaign’s momentum is increasing, as is evident by the debate victory on Wednesday and the recent endorsement by Gov. Kim Reynolds.
DeSantis’ team announced that the governor would be going to Iowa on Friday for his campaign.
Former United Nations ambassador Haley’s campaign similarly announced in a statement that they had raised more than $1 million following the third primary debate in 24 hours. This was the best small-donor fundraising day the campaign has done. They added that October was also their best fundraising month thus far.
Haley’s team has also reported that they have $9 million cash-on-hand, double the amount that DeSantis’ campaign has available as of the end of the third quarter.
