At time of writing Thursday morning, the counter on Bachmann’s campaign site indicates that she has raised…$165,151, far short of the $240,000 goal.
Compare that to Mitt Romney, who recently staged a one-day fundraising bonanza, utilizing a nationwide phone bank, which took in a whopping $10.25 million.
Oof! Well, maybe she can ask Sarah Palin– who may very well cut into her donations if they both were to run– to divvy up her take, since she’s more, er, accomplished at that money thing:
During an interview on CNN’s “John King, USA,” Bachmann said, “My decision will be independent of whichever candidate gets in. I have great respect for Governor Palin, I consider her a friend, and if she gets in, she gets in.”
“That won’t impact whether I get in or not,” Bachmann asserted.
Oh pleaseohpleaseohplease, let them both run. Think of the debates.
