Tuesday’s fundraising numbers indicate that just three Republican women have together raised over $20 million for their political committees in the last quarter alone. Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle’s $14 million shatters the record for a Nevada candidate, while Rep. Michelle Bachmann’s (R-Minn.) $5.4 million is more than any Minnesota congressional candidate has ever raised in an entire election. Sarah Palin, meanwhile, took in $1.2 million for her PAC — a significant sum, seeing as she isn’t officially running for anything.

Angle’s haul, reports the Las Vegas Sun, brings her fundraising numbers nearly on pace with Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.), which says it has raised almost $20 million so far in the six-year cycle that began in 2005. Bachmann’s prowess, meanwhile, will likely turn heads in Congress, notes the Minneapolis Star Tribune, where an average House race winner in 2008 still managed to get by raising a mere $1.4 million during the entire campaign cycle.

The numbers put up by these GOP women testify to their popularity within the party, as well as to the fact that even in areas of campaign finance in which individual donations are still strictly limited, like political action committees belonging to candidates, the amount of political spending has been breaking all sorts of records during the present campaign cycle.

I remember the town hall meeting hosted by Senator Hatch where the woman exclaimed, "you've awakened a sleeping giant". She was just a concerned middle class citizen and took all kinds of flack for that. In the end, it appears she was right.
