Cain had best online fundraising day of campaign yesterday

Despite the scrutiny, or likely because of it, Herman Cain yesterday had his best online fundraising day of his campaign, according to his campaign.

It raised roughly $300,000 in online donations, campaign spokesman J.D. Gordon told NBC News. Campaign Manager Mark Block told The Daily Caller in a taped interview on its website Cain has raised $5 million since Oct. 1, at a rate of about $1.5 million per week.
