It's also worth noting that Walz received over $39,000 in unitemized small contributions during this quarter, while GOP figures were Quist: $1803; Demmer: $1050; Hagedorn: $150.

Small contributions are often a sign of grassroots strength, and the incumbent often lags in this area of fundraising.

Obviously not the case here--since Walz's small contributions are more than the GOP fundraising frontrunner took in. Another thing that speaks to Walz's grassroots support is that a year into the cycle, he still has a number of small donors he can still tap.

Where's the small dollars to match the GOP claims that Walz isn't supported? It doesn't look like the GOP base is rallying its dollars behind any of the Republican challengers.
