Perry Raises $17.1 Million Since Mid-August

WASHINGTON (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry has raised $17.1 million since August 13, and has $15 million in cash on hand.  That's according to an aide for the Republican presidential candidate.
     

The aide spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid pre-empting an announcement later Wednesday.  Almost all of the money is for use in the GOP primary election.

About $50,000 was raised for a general election fund in case Perry wins the GOP nomination.

His chief rival for the GOP nomination, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, brought in $18 million during his first three-month fundraising period, and is expected to come in below that for the fundraising quarter that ended Sept. 30.
