After only 72 hours as the GOP vice presidential contender, Paul Ryan has helped the Romney campaign bring in some big bucks.
Campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul posted on Twitter that the Romney-Ryan ticket has raised $7.4 million online with more than 101,000 donations.
Mitt Romney formally introduced Ryan as his running mate Saturday at an event near the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Va. The campaign sent out a fundraising pitch within hours of the event.
Romney and his allies at the Republican National Committee have raised more money than President Obama and his team for three straight months. The Republicans have $185.9 million in the bank already, much of which Romney cannot touch until he officially becomes the party's presidential nominee at the end of the month.
