Martin Rakes in Dollars and Key Support

Let me just say, "Wow!" I hoped that Jim Martin would be able to raise a quarter of a million dollars in the twelve days between his announcement and qualifying, but he's exceeded that goal by a cool hundred grand for $350,000 total raised this quarter. Lots of Democratic givers were sitting on their support and their wallets, hoping that Jim would get into this race. Even more important than the money, if the room I sat in today is any measure, Jim also has key support from people who can help him politically and with raising the millions needed to defeat Saxby. Way to go, Jim!

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

I agree - do not underestimate Martin. Folks made that mistake in the LG race. But, this time we need to win the general and not just the primary, and we can. Saxby is just about as unpopular as Casey was popular. We'll see if Casey is still popular tonight after the gavel drops.
