Michele Bachmann Raises $4.2 Million, Scores Max Donation From Koch PAC

Michele Bachman raised $4.2 million for her presidential bid over the last quarter, FEC filings show.

However, the numbers are partly carried over from her Congressional war chest: she transferred about $2 million. Bachmann, who is already on the air in Iowa, has been burning through her cash at a pretty quick rate as well, spending about $2.44 million. According to her campaign, she now has $3.6 million cash on hand.

Among the donors offering the maximum contribution: Koch Industries’ Political Action Committee, who pledged $5,000 to her campaign. Koch PAC has also donated to Bachmann’s own political action committee as well as her Congressional campaign.

Most contributions were small, however: according to the campaign, the average donor gave $48.00.
