And the winner is… Ron Paul?

Ron Paul, the Libertarian-leaning congressman from Texas, raked in

nearly $198,000 in Nevada campaign contributions last quarter. According

to year-end Federal Election Commission documents reviewed and analyzed

by the Sun, Paul's fundraising here netted just over $260,000. Mitt

Romney and recent drop-out Rudy Giuliani, the closest runners-up,

brought in slightly more than $119,000 each.

Nationally, Paul's campaign had receipts of almost $20 million in the fourth

quarter, increasing his 2007 total by about 240 percent.

This vaults Paul very close to the Nevada fundraising efforts of Sen.

John McCain, which have yielded $294,000 in 2007. Romney still leads the

state as far as the total amount raised last year, $851,508.

Here’s the list:
