Crazy Eyes Leads In 2012 Fundraising

Rep. Michele "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann has so far this year raised more money for her 2012 presidential campaign than any other prospective candidate.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., raised a combined total of $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2011, outgaining presumed presidential contender Mitt Romney who raised $1.9 million over the same period. Bachmann's political action committee, MichelePAC, raised $500,000 while her Congressional reelection fund took in $1.7 million. The funds raised for her Congressional reelection could be transferred to any federal campaign, including one for president.
The above-linked article notes that most of Bachmann's war chest has come in "small amounts from many individuals" rather than from major donors.
