Jon Huntsman Raises $4.1M When You Include The Donation He Gave Himself


ABC News reports on the details of Hunstman's cash:

The campaign source also confirmed that a portion of the money was donated by Huntsman himself, though it is less than half of the $4.1 million total.

None of the money raised came from Huntsman's Horizon PAC.

More numbers, from the Washington Post:

After announcing his campaign in New Jersey on June 21, Huntsman held a fundraiser in Manhattan that generated an estimated $1.2 million. Lynn Forester de Rothschild, who backed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in 2008 before supporting Republican nominee Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), hosted the event. Also raising money for Huntsman were Morgan Stanley Chairman John Mack and Georgette Mosbacher, a former finance co-chair for the Republican National Committee.

So, how much of Huntsman's take came from Huntsman himself? Today's Salt Lake Tribune reports "about half."

So Huntsman's campaign is not exactly self-funded at this point, just as Huntsman promised. But it's also not yet the independent operation he said he hoped to run.
