DescriptionGreetings from Demon Sheep Central, where US Senate candidate Tom Campbell says that the Demon Sheep gave him his best online fundraising day ever.

OK, so not that Campbell has ever been a fundraising dynamo. Plus, as Team Fiorina spokesperson Julie Soderlund points out to Demon Sheep Central: "His best day of fundraising could be $5 since he just got into the race 3 weeks ago!"

But still, Tom's Big Day was a riff off an attack ad by Team Fiorina ripping him. Well, as we told you earlier, Team Campbell wisely saw the Demon Sheep wave cresting and got out in front of it -- it included the video (despite its rips on Tom) in a fundraising pitch Thursday.

Campbell told KPCC's Patt Morrison Friday afternoon that he thought the ad is "exceptionally nasty."

"But what makes it a news story is that it's so awful, so over the top, that it actually helps me," Campbell told the SoCal public radio host. "The result is the greatest day of contributions on line at Campbell.org. in the entire campaign."
