McCain's Florida fundraising in August was double Obama's

John McCain raised twice as much money as Democrat Barack Obama in Florida last month, buoyed by a $619,000 spike over two days following the introduction of Sarah Palin as his vice president pick. Obama's fundraising also perked up after the Palin pick. He raised a total of $267,000 on Aug. 30 and 31, bringing his monthly total to just over $1 million.
