Romney Rakes in $14 Million; Paul Collects $5 Million

On the final day of third-quarter fundraising for presidential candidates, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney has fallen short of his total from three months ago.

Romney's campaign expects to report between $13 million and $14 million in third-quarter fundraising by the end of the day, Bloomberg Businessweek reports -- shy of the $18.4 million he collected in the second quarter.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas), meanwhile, has topped his second-quarter total. Paul's campaign expects to take in at least $5 million, CNN reported Friday, beating the $4.5 million he collected during the second quarter of 2011.
