A previous post declared Bachmann's second quarter surprisingly weak as her total was $4.2 million. Upon further review, Bachmann raised $2 million in the last 15 days of June after she officially declared her candidacy. That rate were it maintained would amount to $12 million over a full quarter.
If Bachmann can raise $12 million per quarter, she will be financially competitive with Romney who raised $18 million during the second quarter.
The Obama campaign liked the last 15 days of June and hopes it portends Bachmann fundraising success lies ahead.
