(Newser) – Boasting 65,000 donors, Herman Cain’s campaign raked in $3 million over the past month, his chief-of-staff said. “We've actually doubled in a little over a month, and that's what we're seeing in our grassroots activism growth,” Mark Block told CNN. It’s more money than the campaign had raised in the three previous months put together: Between July and September, Cain’s campaign took in some $2.8 million, including a $175,000 loan from the candidate himself.

"I think when this is all said and done, you will see that we have one of the most strongest, widespread and deep grassroots organizations all across America," says Block, who, it seems, has an unusual history.
