Carson raises $20M for '16 bid in past 3 months


ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- Political newcomer Ben Carson's presidential campaign says it raised more than $20 million in the past three months to fuel his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

It's a haul of campaign cash that shatters records and sets a new bar for his GOP rivals.

Campaigning in New Hampshire, Carson tells The Associated Press on Wednesday that "things are going extraordinarily well."

Campaign manager Barry Bennett says Carson raised at least $20.2 million through Wednesday and notes that donations are trickling in.

That's more money than what was raised by the GOP's entire White House field combined over the same period four years ago.
