Angle Campaign Reports Raising $14 Million in Third Quarter

Spokesperson Jarrod Agen has just released Sharron Angle’s stunning third-quarter fundraising results to Battle ‘10.

Angle raised $14 million in the most recent cycle.

Agen called this “one of the most successful single quarters of fundraising in the nation’s history for a U.S. Senate campaign.”

“This is a testament to the hatred of Harry Reid, the nation’s disapproval of President Obama, and the unprecedented grassroots support for Sharron Angle,” said Agen.

“Harry Reid is losing this race, he knows it, and he is just going to get more desperate over the final three weeks.”

Update: Chris Cillizza is duly impressed with Angle’s take but reminds us that Scott Brown raised $14.2 million back in January of this year during his senate bid.

Still, he points out that Angle’s total dwarfs other impressive fundraising hauls by GOP candidates in the third quarter including Senate candidates Marc Rubio of Florida ($5 million) and Dino Rossi of Washington ($4.5 million).
