Bruce W. Eberle & Associates  direct mail fundraising.
According to an article by Bruce Eberle,[1] Buchanan raised more than $4 million from his direct mail effort.  The first mailing of about 75,000 pieces went to Buchanan's newsletter subscribers and others and netted $600,000.  Eberle stated that Buchanan "had success with virtually any prospect list mailed;" the continued flow of funds no doubt helped Buchanan stay in the race through to the convention.
