2016 GOP Presidential candidate Ben Carson may get the last laugh after a string of recent attacks from various media outlets. Led by CNN and Politico, Carson has faced intense scrutiny this week, much of it now debunked.
Supporters are rallying behind Carson, flooding his already record breaking campaign coffers with nearly $4 million dollars!
According to Newsmax:
Ben Carson sarcastically thanked the mainstream media and several negative stories for a fundraising surge that brought in $3.5 million for the former neurosurgeon this week.
Moreover, many of those donations are small from a huge spectrum of donors who can give over and over again, unlike many of the “bundlers” who tap millionaires and billionaires for other other candidates. That is already making Carson’s mailing list the stuff of legend among political professionals and rival campaigns.
Carson said Saturday that his haul was primarily thanks to a “biased media,” according to CNN. He particularly singled out CNN and Politico for several controversial stories this week about details of his personal biography.”
We the People have made 10,000 donations each day this week, raising $3.5M this week alone. Thank you biased media.
