Gov. Rick Perry's defunct presidential campaign struggled to stay afloat in its final weeks, according to a campaign finance report.
Perry's campaign raised $389,000 in January and burned through $3.3 million, according to a report filed with the Federal Elections Commission.
Perry ended his campaign on Jan. 19 but has not yet shut down his presidential campaign account. At the end of the month, the campaign had $860,168 remaining.
Previous campaign finance reports showed that Perry's fundraising plunged near the end of 2011 as poor debate performances marred his standing in the polls.
According to his latest report, Perry's campaign spent much of its money on advertising in South Carolina.
Last week, Salvatore Purpura, Perry's campaign treasurer, wrote a letter to the FEC asking to convert Perry's account into a political action committee, possibly a so-called Super PAC. Purpura wrote in the letter that the campaign had $270,000 in donations that could only be used for the general election.
