Bachmann Raises Over $810K In First Quarter 2010

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) had a very strong fundraising quarter, taking in over $810,000 for the first three months of 2010, and $1.5 million cash on hand.

Overall, Bachmann has raised a total of $2.4 million so far during campaign cycle. For the two Democrats competing to run against her, state Sen. Tarryl Clark has raised $1.1 million since entering the race last summer, and former state university regent Maureen Reed has raised $1 million, including $250,000 of her own money.

Professor Larry Jacobs at the University of Minnesota told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the massive amounts of money both for and against Bachmann can be explained as thus: “I think it’s one word: passion.”
