Sarah Palin raised $469,000 between Oct. 13 and Nov. 22 bringing her total for the cycle to just under $4.5 million, Tim Crawford, SarahPAC's treasurer, told TIME exclusively. Crawford attributed the surge of funds to energy surrounding the midterm elections, Palin's endorsements and her TLC reality show Sarah Palin's Alaska. Her second book, America By Heart, came out Nov. 23.
The PAC spent $64,000 buying advance copies of her books, "just as we did last year" with her first book, Going Rogue, Crawford said. "They're a great fundraising tool for us." Palin is in the midst of a two-week cross-country book tour. (See photos of Sarah Palin's new reality show.)
Overall the PAC spent $581,000 between Oct. 13 and Nov. 22. A larger percentage than normal was spent on contributions to political candidates, $244,000, as Palin tried to help her 81 endorsed candidates over the Nov. 2 finish line. Fifty-five of them won.

IMO, R's are very interested in keeping SP occupied and busy- Collectively, they'll do and encourage any activity that keeps her away from the top position. SP's name on the presidential ballot will only hurt Rs in the long run- I think most would agree-
