Yesterday, I mentioned that Ron Paul has been stingy with spending his campaign resources.  Today's NY Times reports that Ron Paul has begun ramping-up his staff:

The support has allowed the Paul campaign to expand both in reach and in size, and it has planned a second round of television spots (the first were broadcast in Iowa in August). And the campaign staff has been increased to 44 people from 10 over the last 10 weeks.

Update - 10:02:  Reason's David Weigel points out that Paul's "11th hour fundraiser" brought in $1.2 million in a week.  In terms of Paul's spending, he also points out that Paul's burn rate is around 35 percent.
