Paul Rivals Clinton, Raising Almost $20 Million for Campaign

Say, I was at my barber's today, and as always a fount of information in such places (something more important than this 5 of the 8 big 12 teams that made it to bowl games, won! Anyway, back to this, I understand that candidates don't have to give the money back that they've collected? Is this going to make Ron Paul a multi-millionaire? He should give the money to someone who has a chance, like Huckabee. Anyway, Ron Paul is Too Close to Kooky. Yes, it would much better if these people gave money to their local churches, The Believer and Politics.
