Cruz Campaign Raises $14.2M

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ted Cruz's presidential campaign says it has raised more than $14 million in the just over three months since the Texas senator launched his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

The campaign says the money comes from more than 120,000 donors, who made an average contribution of $81. Cruz raised $4.3 million in the week after announcing his bid in late March. The campaign says it raised an additional $10 million through the end of June.

Cruz also will benefit from several super PACs that are supporting him and can raise money without any contribution limits. Those groups have previously said they have raised $37 million.

Presidential campaigns must report their fundraising details to federal regulators by July 15. Outside groups such as super PACs have a later deadline.
