In the second quarter of this year, Republican U.S. House Rep. Michele Bachmann’s fundraising haul of $1.7 million was the biggest of any U.S. House candidate.
Now, according to spokesman Sergio Gor, her third quarter fundraising is more than twice as big as her Q2 haul, putting it at more than $3.4 million.
Gor notes that Bachmann’s camp has now added $1 million to its cash-on-hand, which was $2.4 million in the second quarter. He adds that the campaign had contributions from 100,000 people.
Gor says an official release of the numbers will come in the next few days.
