Fred Thompson to report $3 million haul in one month

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Presumptive presidential candidate Fred Thompson will report raising roughly $3 million in one month for his all-but-certain White House bid.

Republican officials said Monday the report will be made Tuesday.

The figure will include money collected in June only, as the Internal Revenue Service requires. Dollars raised in July, during which Thompson has held several large fundraising events, won't be disclosed.

Several Republicans with knowledge of Thompson's fundraising confirmed the first-month total on the condition of anonymity because he has not yet made the figure public. A Thompson spokeswoman, Linda Rozett, declined to comment.

He's an actor and former US senator from Tennessee.
