From Press Release

 

Republican presidential candidate former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum’s campaign marked its highest single fundraising day of the 2016 presidential campaign on Thursday.

Through a “Day of Giving,” the Santorum campaign launched a campaign-wide, single-day fundraising initiative with grassroots leaders across the country. These efforts were teamed with work of the campaign’s National Finance Committee to match the online fundraising efforts.

The “Day of Giving” goal was to raise $100,000; however, in just 24-hours, the Santorum Campaign shattered all previous campaign fundraising efforts, raising $286,512 through direct contributions and pledges. Of this total, the Santorum Campaign’s National Finance Committee donated $100,000 as part of a challenge fund in concert with the campaign’s grassroots donors.

“Our campaign is gaining steam each and every day, and our efforts are ahead of our expectations defying campaign from four short years ago,” Santorum said. “While the national media and pundits are distracted by the shiny objects in the race, we are building an organization in the early primary states that will leave us well positioned to once again separate from the field in Iowa.”
