Angle’s $14 million haul


Former Nevada state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle (R) raised an eye-popping $14 million between July 1 and Sept. 30 for her challenge to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D), a stunning number that far eclipses the cash-collection totals of other prominent candidates seeking Senate seats next month.

“Sharron Angle produced one of the most successful single quarters of fundraising in the nation’s history for a U.S. Senate campaign,” said Angle communications director Jarrod Agen. “This is a testament to the hatred of Harry Reid, the nation’s disapproval of President Obama, and the unprecedented grassroots support for Sharron Angle.”

Ninety four percent of the money raised in the third quarter by Angle came in the form of donation of $100 or less. Ninety six percent of the contributions were $200 or less.

Small individual donors, grassroots support and getting around the Republican establishment in DC.  That’s what it’s all about for Republican candidates in this cycle.  The left, of course, calls it pandering to the “crazies”.

But when half-term Senator Barack Obama raises money from small donors and gets grassroots support from the moonbats, it’s called unprecedented “hope and change.”

    The money came from Karl Rove, Dick Armey and the Koch brothers. Grassroots?

        I don’t have time to waste watching MSNBC. By your comment, I’m assuming they would agree with me.
