Sarah Palin Rakes In Nearly $500,000 In Recent Weeks

Palin’s involvement in the midterm elections and her reality television series may have contributed to the recent surge in funding. Her new book, which will likely prove a good fundraising tool as well, did not hit stores until Nov. 23.

The recent influx of cash brings the total amount raised by Palin’s SarahPAC in 2009-2010 to approximately $5.3 million, roughly $3.2 million in the current fiscal year.

The recently raised cash was a result of direct mail or online donations, according to Time, which reports that Palin had only two fundraisers for her PAC this year, compared to Mitt Romney’s nine.
