Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn had another strong fundraising quarter, bringing in $2.4 million during the first three months of 2014. It's the most money she has raised in a quarter since launching her U.S. Senate campaign.

Nunn's campaign announced Nunn's total Monday, saying 20,000 donors have given to the campaign since Nunn kicked it off last year. The campaign did not say how much money Nunn had in her campaign account at the end of March. At the end of 2013, she had nearly $2.5 million.

Nunn has been the fundraising standout of the Georgia race. Republican Rep. Jack Kingston raised $1.1 million, while Reps. Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey were each reportedly under $500,000 for the quarter.

The crowded Republican primary field will be whittled on May 20. Most observers expect the top two finishers to advance to a runoff, which would happen if no candidate wins a majority. Nunn has a clear path to the Democratic nomination.

Republicans debated Saturday night. The South Carolina GOP primary and the Nevada Democratic caucuses are next on Feb. 20. Get caught up on the race.
The Post's Dan Balz says...
Rarely has the division between Trump and party elites been more apparent. Trump trashed one of the most revered families in Republican politics and made a bet that standing his ground is better than backing down. Drawing boos from the audience, Trump did not flinch. But whether he will be punished or rewarded by voters was the unanswerable question.

The Fix asks The State's political reporter where the most important region of the state is.
The State's Andy Shain says he could talk about Charleston, which represents a little bit of everything the state has to offer from evangelicals to libertarians, and where Ted Cruz is raising more money than anywhere else. In a twist, Marco Rubio is drawing strong financial support from more socially conservative Upstate. That said, Donald Trump is bursting all the conventional wisdom in the state. So maybe the better answer to this question is, "Wherever Trump is."
