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.
