Tea Party-Loving Republican Senate Candidates Propelled by Cash from Ideological Groups, Small Donors

OpenSecrets: "An analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics shows that some of the highest-profile Tea Party-supported candidates have collected significant sums of money from individuals contributing $200 or less, the Federal Election Commission’s threshold for itemized disclosure in campaign finance reports. These donors rarely account for more than 20 percent of a Senate candidate’s total fund-raising sums.
Sharron Angle, who emerged after a contentious primary as the Republican nominee against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), has raised more than $2.05 million through June 30 from individuals giving $200 or less. At that time -- the date of most recent campaign finance reports -- these funds accounted for 58 percent of her war chest."
