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.
The NRCC Has cancelled Bachmann's air time for her ads the next two weeks, so she'll need more donations from the supporters she has left. This is not looking good for her.
