Rudy Giuliani Brings in Campaign Cash - A Strong Quarter of Fundraising

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - Top officials from Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani's campaign on Thursday trumpeted a strong second-quarter fundraising effort and brushed off concerns that Republican candidates are trailing top Democrats in the race for campaign cash.
The former New York mayor's campaign earlier this week announced it had raised $17 million in the second quarter, up slightly from $16.6 million in the first quarter. Other top Republicans, meanwhile, saw their fundraising pace slow.
"We have successfully maintained our first-quarter pace ... our team feels very good about what we accomplished," said Anne Dunsmore, Giuliani's deputy campaign manager for finance.
