Scott Brown ‘Money-Bomb’ Brings In Big Money

A “money-bomb” online fundraiser by Scott Brown, the Republican candidate in next week’s special election for Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusetts, has been a smashing success today.

The original goal for the money-bomb, entitled “Red Invades Blue,” was to raise $500,000 today. As of this writing, he has exceeded that goal — he is now at $626,375.87 — and he’s headed towards a new goal of $750,000.

Regardless of whether Brown wins or loses in this Democratic state, one thing is clear: National conservative activists have been able to take a clear interest in this race, and they could mobilize themselves for a cause in a similar way to the liberal Netroots during the Bush years.

Late Update: At about 6:15 p.m. ET, the money-bomb reached $750,018.81.
