On Saturday, Ben Carson said that his campaign brought in $3.5 million this week thanks to ‘biased media’ . The Republican presidential candidate said that they brought in a minimum of 10,000 donations a day last week. “We the People have made 10,000 donations each day this week, raising $3.5M this week alone. Thank you biased media,” he tweeted.
Carson also tweeted that his campaign brought in $10 million dollars for the month of October. In the most recent fundraising quarter, he has brought in the most money of any GOP candidate, totaling just over $22 million. The funding surge that arose Saturday is said to be because of reports of Ben Carson’s past. In response to the allegations made by the media Ben Carson rebelled against the media and criticized them by saying that their point is to distract people and to make them seem dishonest. Carson even went as far as to challenge the media to realize the role that they play in restoring the American dream.
