NEW YORK (AP) -- Republican presidential hopefuls are in the
midst of a fundraising frenzy as they seek to raise campaign cash
and assemble influential donor networks.

With the 2012 campaign off to a slow start, the contenders are
under pressure to show they can raise money before the summer
season begins.

Lew Eisenberg, a fundraiser for Mitt Romney, says that while
money's not the only indication of a candidate's potential, it's an
important indication.

For now, the candidates are skipping wall-to-wall public
appearances. Instead, they're rushing between private meetings and
dialing phone lists to persuade donors to come aboard in hopes of
meeting early goals.
