Tinklenberg hits $620 k in donations

An official with Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg’s campaign says the 6th District DFLer raised $620 thousand since GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann made her comments on Friday.

The source said another surge in donations occurred after former Secretary of State Colin Powell cited Bachmann as one of the reasons he endorsed Barack Obama. Powell called her comments “nonsense” during a briefing with reporters. You can watch his entire briefing here.
