Allen campaign raises over $1 million in latest quarter

I'm just getting around to reporting on this but didn't want to overlook that fact that the George Allen for Senate campaign raised $1.1 million in the last quarter of 2011.

Allen and his campaign expressed gratitude to their many contributors as the former Virginia Republican governor noted:

“The continued generosity of our dedicated grassroots team of supporters has put us in strong standing as we move forward to the November 2012 elections. I truly believe the 2012 election is our generation’s ‘rendezvous with destiny’ and Virginians are energized and ready to bring change to Washington."
According the Washington Examiner, financial help should be there for both the Republican and Democratic candidate leading into the general election:

Money isn't expected to be a great barrier to either candidate no matter how expensive the next 11 months become. The high-profile race has already attracted spending from outside political groups hoping to influence what is widely regarded as one of the most important Senate contests in the country.
