You just raised a record-breaking $38.1 million in three months. From 802,836 contributions. No PACs, no special interests, no corporations. All people, all the time, everywhere, every single day. pic.twitter.com/IDMFNFwezB

Cruz’s campaign said it raised a total of more than $12 million in the quarter. O’Rourke raised about half that amount online alone during the last several days of September.
O’Rourke’s fundraising in the second quarter also dwarfed Cruz’s effort, $10.4 million to $4.6 million, according to the Texas Tribune.
O’Rourke’s campaign has a two-day goal of “knocking 102,733 doors and making 102,733 phone calls” this weekend, according to the Daily Beast.
