Several of the Republican presidential candidates -- some still in the running, some not -- are filing their campaign finance reports.
Rudy Giuliani, who dropped out on Wednesday after collecting a grand total of one delegate, reported raising $14.2 million during the last three months of 2007, and $59.2 million total. He had $16.6 million in the bank at the end of the year, but likely spent it on his ill-fated campaign in Florida.
John McCain, who won Giuliani's endorsement, reported to the Federal Election Commission that he raised $6.8 million during the fourth quarter, bringing his campaign total to $37.5 million. McCain ended the year with $3 million in the bank, but also a $4.5 million debt, according to his FEC filing.
Mike Huckabee, who is still in the race, reported bringing in $6.6 million during the fourth quarter, bringing his total to $9 million. He reported having only $651,000 in cash on hand as of Dec. 31.
Fred Thompson, who dropped out earlier this month after a dismal showing in South Carolina, said he raised $8.9 million during the last three months of 2007, and a total of $21.7 million. He had $7.1 million in the bank at year's end.
