Meanwhile, the GOP White House contenders are scrambling, according to new third quarter reports:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich scrapped together $807,962 in the third quarter. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney collected $14.2 million. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who started in the third quarter, took in $17.2 million.
