Coakley Fundraising Today Haul Hits $526,000 -- And Counting

Seeking to build on the money bomb that has already brought in more than half a million dollars to her campaign, Massachusetts Democratic Senate nominee Martha Coakley has redirected the contribution link on her website to a new "Do It For Ted" Act Blue page hosted by Vicki Kennedy, the widow the late Senator Ted Kennedy.

More than $5,300 in new online contributions have been processed through the page in the roughly 15 minutes since it went live at about 7:50 PM Eastern according to tallies publicly available on Act Blue.

[UPDATE by Jonathan]: More than $10,000 came through in the first half hour of the page according to public numbers on Act Blue, though it is unclear how rapidly the numbers are being refreshed or the extent to which they approach real time.

[UPDATE 2 by Jonathan]: Martha Coakley has now raised $457,000 online since earlier this afternoon, according to a Democratic strategist with direct knowledge of the campaign's fundraising.

[UPDATE 3 by Jonathan]: Martha Coakley's fundraising today has surpassed half a million dollars. As of 10:45 PM Eastern, Coakley's campaign brought in $526,000 in online contributions -- and counting -- a Democratic strategist tells MyDD.

Coakley vs Brown

If Congress stopped trying to put through a bill on Obamacare that the majority of U S Citizens do not like. Martha might have an easier job. If Congress was working of the bigger problems of creating jobs and fixing the Economy, Coakly would have been a Shoo-In. And I being a Lifelond Democrat would probably not consider voting straight Republican this year.

You write, "If Congress stopped trying to put through a bill on Obamacare that the majority of U S Citizens do not like. Martha might have an easier job."

Not so much. Even in the Republican-friendly universe that is the latest Rasmussen poll of the Massachusetts Senate election, a majority of likely voters back the current healthcare reform proposal.

Vicki Kennedy

I wish Kennedy's fundraising appeal had been sent out not by Coakleys campaign, but by the DNC.
