Gary Johnson gets more presidential matching funds

Gary Johnson gets more presidential matching funds - Paul Singer, USA Today:

July 6, 2012 - "The Federal Election Commission announced Thursday that Johnson ... and Buddy Roemer ... have both qualified for additional federal matching funds for the primaries. In the July installment, Roemer gets $66,491 and Johnson gets $130,059. That brings Johnson's total for the election cycle to $230,059, while Roemer has received a total of $351,961.

"The matching funds come from a $3 voluntary check-off individual taxpayers make on their tax returns. According to the FEC, "To become eligible, candidates must raise a threshold amount of $100,000 by collecting $5,000 in 20 different states in amounts no greater than $250 from any individual. Other requirements to be declared eligible include agreeing to an overall spending limit, abiding by spending limits in each state, using public funds only for legitimate campaign-related expenses, keeping financial records and permitting an extensive campaign audit.""
