If nothing else, Romney's choice of running mate is going to be a bonanza for his fundraising.

CNN:

Following the roll out of his vice presidential pick, Mitt Romney's fundraising numbers got a Republican enthusiasm-fueled boost.

On Sunday, Andrea Saul, Romney's campaign press secretary, wrote on Twitter that fund-raising had spiked for the candidate after revealing Paul Ryan as his running mate.

That was a jump from midday Saturday, when Saul wrote that Romney had brought in just over $1 million since Ryan's name went public.

In July, Romney's campaign and the Republican National Committee raised $101.3 million - an average of $3.4 million per day, raised mostly through high-dollar fund-raisers.

There is little doubt that picking Ryan has excited the base. The line to see the newly minted GOP team stretched a mile in NC this morning.
