Joe Wilson Rakes In $750,000 In Less Than 48 Hours After Shout Of "You Lie" To Obama
With a political arms race in full force, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) has raised almost $750,000 in less than 48 hours since his shout of "You lie!" to President Obama during the Wednesday address to Congress, almost matching the Internet-fueled haul of his likely Democratic opponent.

A senior GOP official said Wilson, who apologized to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel after the health-care speech but has since refused a more public apology, has turned his own previous sleepy campaign machine into an Web-friendly effort. Just as liberals have poured cash into the campaign of Rob Miller, who lost to Wilson by almost eight percentage points in 2008, conservatives are pouring contributions into Wilson's campaign at an astonishing rate.

Miller, a former Iraq war veteran, has raised more than $1 million for his 2010 rematch with Wilson, according to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Republicans expect Wilson to also top more than $1 million by Monday because of the immense publicity he's received in the last 48 hours. In the relatively inexpensive South Carolina district, which takes in the southern portion of the state, the two opponents will likely have their two-year budgets filled in less than a week, strategists say.

To put this fund-raising haul in perspective, Wilson, by early next week, could equal the total amount of money he raised in the entire two-year-election cycle of 2008, when he raised a little more than $1.1 million.

Miller, by contrast, raised just $390,000 in donations for the entire 2008 cycle and lent himself another $235,000 of his own money, according to records filed with the Federal Election Commission. So he's already doubled, in just two days, his total donations over a two-year period.

The controversy will definitely go on through the weekend, as Wilson -- a quiet backbench lawmaker who's never been in the national spotlight -- is scheduled to appear on the Sunday morning news show "Fox News Sunday." If he continues to refuse to make a public apology on the House floor, Democrats plan to offer a resolution admonishing his comments to Obama.

After liberal Internet activists turned Miller into a cause celebre in their effort to extract revenge on Wilson, conservatives joined the fray. Wilson, who hired GOP web strategist David All, now has ads running on conservative-leaning web sites such as the Drudge Report.

"Democrats plan to offer a resolution admonishing his comments to Obama."

Don't these people have other things to be doing besides asking him to apologize over and over and over?

Now they just sound like cry babies.

Get over yourself Dems! Everyone would have forgotten this by now if you had just shut up. How did these stupid people get into office?

He only said what all with a brain were thinking.

Yes, this is yet another PR battle the libs will lose and lose badly. They are totally tone deaf to the American public from never coming in actual contact with it.

Are you saying by this same logic Democrats who create a ruckus are lucky they live in areas occupied by uncivilized ghetto dwellers who are uneducated (and proud of it)? YES! everyone celebrate the ignorance of our country?

Just wondering if your bigotry goes both ways.

Yes but don't forget that Joe's potential opponent had to retire nearly $500,000 In debt.

Joe already had nearly $400,000 in his war chest.

South Carolina normally leans conservative anyway.

Tell your buddies back at nope and Democratic Underbelly that we hope George Soros throws away a lot of his money in South Carolina. Joe has a bright future if he remembers the people.

I suggest you watch how many people show up in DC tomorrow for 9/12 the tide has turned.

Obama is like Carter but less effective.

BTW the opponent, A Marine Vet, in the race who was virtually unknown has now raised 1,000,000,000 in less then 48 hours.


And this of course

according to the latest numbers from Public Policy Polling.

Rep. Wilson (R-S.C.) trails challenger Rob Miller 44 to 43 percent in the poll. Wilson defeated Miller 54-46 in the 2008 election.

62% of voters in his district say they disapprove of Wilson's actions while just 29% think
they were okay. Overall, 49% of voters say that Wednesday's incident made them less likely to vote for Wilson in the future, while 35% said it made them more likely to do so.

"In a matter of seconds Joe Wilson turned himself from a safe incumbent into one of the
most vulnerable Republicans in the country for 2010," said Dean Debnam, president of
Public Policy Polling.

PPP surveyed 747 South Carolina 2nd Congressional District voters on September 10th and 11th. The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 3.6 percent.
