Santorum Raises $1M in 24 Hours

It’s the Santorum surge! A campaign spokesman said that presidential hopeful Rick Santorum has raised $1 million after his surprise hat-trick victory in Colorado, Minnesota, and Missouri Tuesday night. Eighty percent of the money was from online donations—which even crashed the website. Good signs for Santorum: website traffic was nearly twice as heavy as on the day after the Iowa caucuses (though it’s important to remember Santorum wasn’t declared the winner in the state until later). While this sum is still far behind Mitt Romney’s numbers, it’s a sign that Santorum may be gaining momentum.
