Cool Paul Fact

Unlike many political candidates, Paul receives the overwhelming majority of his campaign contributions from individuals[69] (97 percent during the 2006 cycle), and receives much less from political action committees (PACs) than others, ranging from two percent (2002) to six percent (1998).[70] The group Clean Up Washington, analyzing from 2000 to mid-2006, listed Paul as seventh-lowest of PAC receipts of all House members; one of the lowest in lobbyist receipts; and fourth-highest in small-donor receipts.[71] He had the lowest PAC receipts percentage of all the 2008 Republican presidential candidates.[72][73]
