That’s how much Scott Brown is reportedly still raising from online donors, a day after Jon Ward of the Daily Caller broke the news of the fundraising surge.

There’s very little in the way of Democratic optimism right now–I am hearing that Democrat Martha Coakley’s internal polls show the same floundering that public polls do–but what little exists is bolstered by stories like this one in Politico. All Republican guns are blazing, but that doesn’t translate to a ground game that can compete with the union and machine ground game that Democrats are mustering. It’s Republican activists in states like Texas manning the phones for GOTV calls. Nonetheless, there’s a growing sense that Coakley, by failing to campaign hard and define the race (and Brown) in December, might have created a GOP opening that’s impossible to close.
