Total Receipts This Cycle: $4,074,221


South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson had similar numbers to Bachmann's. Like Bachmann, he has taken in just over $4 million this election cycle, with $3.7 million of that coming from individuals. Unlike Bachmann, much of his financial support came last year. Wilson's infamous outburst of "You lie!" during a September 2009 speech by President Obama sparked an outpouring of financial support. The Wilson campaign reported receiving $200,000 in the 24 hours after that incident, and nearly two-thirds of Wilson's current fundraising total came in that quarter. Wilson's $342,895 in receipts for the second quarter of 2010 pale in comparison.
