In politics, money usually chases the surging candidates. Mike Huckabee, it seems, scared it away -- until this month.

With your efforts, we have raised a total of $703,879 online during the month of October, including $331,420 over the last five days.



From October 1 through 24, Huckabee took in nearly $30,000 per day.

That's way above average.

In the first quarter, Huckabee averaged about $6,054 per day. (That's $544,880 divided by 90 days)

In the second quarter, Huckabee averaged about $8,391 per day.

In the third quarter, Huckabee averaged about $25,437 per day.

The campaign set a goal of $1,034,487 by midnigh ton October 31 -- a Million for Mike. Even one dollar -- "A Buck for Huck" -- is welcomed by the campaign.

The fundraising email states a goal of having $1.7M in the bank by end of November.
