Head fake! Connie Mack raises $758k, 50 percent more than initially indicated

A week ago, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Connie Mack sent out a memo suggesting he raised about $500,000.


Now he reports raising $758k in the fourth quarter. That's about 50 percent more. Good expectations management.

"Last week I said that I believed our campaign would exceed our $500,000 fundraising goal for the fourth quarter. Thanks to you, boy did we ever," campaign manager Jeff Cohen wrote in a memo.

Along with money from his congressional re-election account, Mack reports he has $918,000 in the bank.
