Senate Candidate Todd Akin says he reached 1 million dollars in online donations.
Wrap: Akin campaign advisor Rick Tyler says the recent progress will be very beneficial to the campaign because it shows both national and local support.

Akin recently received endorsements from big names in the G-O-P such as Newt Gingrich, as well as a recent endorsement from the NRA.
