Ex-Sen. Fred Thompson raised more than $8M since July, a campaign adviser said this morning.
Thompson has recieved donations from more than 70,000 individual contributors since June, when his testing-the-waters account opened. (The campaign has yet to release the amount of money he raised that month).
The large number of donors suggests that Thompson's financial base is fairly broad; in the first quarter of the year, Sen. John McCain obtained contributions from 51,000 different donors, a record at the time.
