(Newser) – Funny what a little publicity can do. Christine O'Donnell's campaign has raked in $850,000 since Tuesday's win, ABC News reports. "We're at 99% of our $1,000,000 goal," O'Donnell herself tweeted this afternoon. "Help push us over the top." And even if that math is a smidge off, it's still quite a jump from the $20,374 she had in her campaign coffers before election night—and not bad for someone whose declared earnings from March 2009 to July of this year were just $5,800. As for opponent Chris Coons: He's pulled in $125,000 since Tuesday, notes the Huffington Post. For all things O'Donnell, click here.
