Fiorina raised $6.8 million in July, August and September
Strong showing in two debates has boosted her poll numbers
Carly Fiorina’s success in the opening Republican debates helped her raise $6.8 million this past summer, her campaign said Tuesday.
The businesswoman’s fundraising total is likely to place her squarely in the middle of the Republican field.
Fiorina outraised some candidates originally seen as more established contenders, like sitting senators Marco Rubio, who raised $6 million, and Rand Paul, who collected $2.5 million, according to numbers released by their campaigns.
