In a later update, he indicates that they hit $488,000 on the way to $500,000 by the end of today.
24 hours ago, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced that all those who disagree with her are "Anti-American." Since then, the outpouring of support for my campaign has been extraordinary. Since Congresswoman Bachmann's outrageous remarks, my campaign has raised $438,346.57, and we're working to reach $500,000 by 5 p.m. today. Congresswoman Bachmann's extreme ideology divides people, but her comments on MSNBC's Hardball have united all of those who believe that I will jump start the ecomomy on Main Street by creating jobs and rebuilding our infrastructure. As a Minister and Mayor, I brought people together. I believe that we build by addition, not division. I want to thank you all. It is now clear that we have the momentum to win and I ask for your financial support. I will keep everyone posted.

In response to something I blogged earlier about the odious Michelle Bachmann whose tirade on MSNBC was a very special GOP moment, her opponent El Tinklenberg was able to raise more than $488,000 in 24 hours (click here to contribute!). Most contributors indicated that their contributions were in specific response to Bachmann's hateful screed.
