Ron Paul Launches 'Money Bomb' on Day of First Debate

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

On the day of the first Republican primary debate, Ron Paul launched his first mass online fundraising effort, known as a "money bomb."

The "money bomb" was a staple of the Paul campaign during the 2008 primary season, involving a grassroots effort to put Paul on the map for the GOP nomination. In 2008, Paul set a record by raising nearly $6 million in one day, on the 234th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party.

Thus far Thursday, Paul has raised over $500,000.

The debate can be seen on Fox News and starting at 9 p.m. ET.
