Now that Tim Pawlenty's campaign has revealed that he banked $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2011, and Jon Huntsman's total (with a cash infusion from the Bank of Huntsman) is $4.1, Ron Paul's campaign tells me that it beat them both. I'm told that Paul socked around $4.5 million, with details to come.
It's completely possible that Paul came second to Romney in the cash race so far.
