An official with Democrat Elwyn Tinklenberg’s campaign said Tinklenberg has raised $1 million in the 96 hours since GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann appeared on MSNBC’s Hardball. Tinklenberg is hoping to unseat Bachmann in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District.
Meanwhile, Bachmann’s campaign manager said the Bachmann campaign also got a boost in donations. They’re still tallying how much they raised.
