Angle's Fast Fundraising

Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle is raising over $100,000 per day, Hotline OnCall's Reid Wilson notes, according to the fundraising count on her website. After winning the June 8 primary to challenge Harry Reid in the fall, Angle re-vamped her campaign website, winnowing it down to a single page that encourages visitors to donate (plus a form to enter donations). Since then, the counter on her site shows over $850,000 raised.


Needless to say, that's a lot, and Angle can use the boost. Though financial disclosures haven't been due to the Federal Election Commission since March 31 (before the home stretch of her primary), Angle then reported just over $430,000 in her war chest. Reid, by contrast, had $9.4 million in the bank at that time.

Angle is now the latest conservative to raise a lot of money quickly online. It's a trend we've seen since Ron Paul broke the all-time single-day campaign fundraising record with a one-day haul of $6 million in 2007.
