O’Donnell Raises Two Million Dollars Online Since Primary Win

Fundraising has exploded for Christine O’Donnell online since her primary win, according to Shane D’Aprile at The Hill’s campaign blog, The Ballot Box:

Since upsetting party-backed Rep. Mike Castle (R-Del.) in Delaware’s GOP Senate primary Tuesday, Christine O’Donnell has raised nearly $2 million online.

A source with knowledge of the campaign’s online fundraising operation said that not only is the money is coming in as fast as it did for Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) ahead of his special election, but that O’Donnell’s raising money online at a pace that’s two to three times faster than Sharron Angle in Nevada after her win in the primary.

A week before his special election with Democrat Martha Coakley in Massachusetts, Brown raised $1.3 million online in a single day with some 16,000 individual donors.

O’Donnell’s campaign said Friday that it expects to surpass the $2 million mark sometime this weekend and said some 30,000 donors have given since her primary win Tuesday.

O’Donnell’s campaign is utilizing the same online fundraising team that led online efforts for Brown and is currently raising money for Angle–the Indiana-based Prosper Group.

Delaware is a small state, the old joke is that it has three counties but only two at high tide, both in land area and population, under a million.  Christine O’Donnell will have an ample campaign war chest to fight this election in such a small arena.  Additionally, donations of this magnitude from large numbers of donors will also translate into large numbers of volunteers to go door to door.   The mainstream media is treating Christine O’Donnell as a joke, but she is putting together the elements necessary to wage a hard uphill political fight.  People who underestimate this woman do so to their political peril.

    Who’d’a thunk there were 30,000 wiccans (with $5 in their pockets!) in the country!

    Maybe the geniuses feverishly running the country into the crapper are misunderestimating the slow-burning dudgeon of we the unwashed peasants.

    I hope she cleans house.

    I like her for every reason you hate her. She spoke the absolute truth about masturbation, and Christ’s teaching on lust.

    What is most remarkable is the sense of general revolt to encrusted power structures and arrogant political elites now clearly assuming gigantic proportions.

    If you look at Countries like the UK and Germany, nothing of the sort is happening and what you see is the silent majority quietly tolerating a reshaping of society they do not approve of, but have no guts to revolt against.

    This they do because of the erroneous misconception that they be “somewhat wrong” and “backwards” and their progressivist, PC-talking headmasters the “enlightened” ones.

    I see a completely different spirit the other side of the Pond; I hope that its effects will soon be felt here, too.

    From your lips to God’s ear mundabor!

    I support her. I agree with Joe. I hope she cleans house.

    That’s interesting how you described the three counties in Delaware. I used to live about 10 miles from the Maryland/Delaware state line and remember being on Bi State Boulevard where the street was literally split in half between two states. I remember standing on one side of the street I being in Maryland and then standing on the other side of the street and being in Delaware.

    Yes, I really do want my political analysis from some yahoo called “topnotchentertainment.” I am supposed to take this left wing looper seriously?

  8. ya I just did a nice piece on….Miss O’Donnell

    If by “nice piece” you mean “copying and pasting from the Daily Show” then perhaps. But there was nothing original or insightful about the piece.

    You would have thought the left would have learned its lesson from Palin’s rise. Instead of just leaving her alone and letting her trip herself up due to her own failures (Palin-ignorance on foreign policy; O’Donnell-questionable history re taxes and employment), they’ve gone after her for essentially being Christian. Like Douthat pointed out, the left turned this into a culture war, and for that I hope they enjoying having to deal with a Senator O’Donnell for 6 years.

    Denton – Exactly right. A calm, systematic effort could have buried her. The current hysteria against a sweet young lady, led by a creepy atheist, is her best hope for the Senate seat.

    You make fun of the “topnotchentertainment”, but I guess your pope just admitted that child abuse by your priests is a problem not being resolved fast enough. So you may want ms O’Donnell to clean the house but take a look in the mirror. Certain old saying says that when you are pissed off at someone else, it is you who makes the reality what is. So may be the reality is your anger at “Washington elites” is an emotional response to some unresolved issues with an authority figure. No? Could it be your priest?

    Your O’Donnell dumb crack has support of about 30,000 Sussex and Kent County brainless ‘fud’ – Just for your information Delaware is close to a 1 mil in population. If 10% of them were democrats and independents who see her exactly for what she is and vote accordingly, she goes down 3:1. However, I do believe that number will be higher.

    Little someting to think about Robocall.

    When I read the sort of commentary posted by “topnotchentertainment” I have to wonder whatever became of art of meaningful political debate?
    Lets see, it is okay to berate a Senate candidate for statements made as a 19 year old young woman regarding her dabbling in witchcraft in her high school years. The problem is that for so many years there are Senators and Congressman who have done far worst and are lionized. The list:
    -Senator Edward Kennedy (D) Massachusetts – This fine gentleman left the scene of an accident and ran away leaving a young woman to drown. Had he used his head and knocked on the door of a nearby house help may have come in time to save poor Mary Jo. This man has been called “The Lion of the Senate” . This incident should have called into question, the integrity, judgment and courage of the Senator.
    -Senator Robert Byrd (D) West Virginia – The press used to tell stories of the love for the Constitution this man had. He was actively involved with the Klu Klux Klan an illegal, racist and criminal organization. The post mortem defense that President William Jefferson Clinton used was that he had to be part of the Klan how else would he be elected. If he did as Bill Clinton said then he showed an incredible lack of integrity. If he joined because he really believed what the Klan stood for then he is simply a hatefilled bigot. Funny no one on the Tonight show, Late Night with David Letterman or the Daily Show has ever thought this worth comment.
    There are so many more examples of progressive Senators, Congressman, governors, mayors, who get a pass from the media. Why because they “have the correct opinions”.
    What is Ms O’Donnell’s crime, she holds the wrong opinion.
