    The Diary states:

    Grimes’s campaign has raised almost $11.3 million in all, with an average contribution of $25 from almost 84,000 supporters, according to a statement from the campaign.
    The math does not work.

    $25 average donation from 84,000 supporters would be $2.1million.

    For the math to work and not be dishonest - 84,000 contributors have averaged $25 contributions 5-times apiece.

    Either the average donation/contributor is over $125/person, or Grimes has received more than 84,000 donations.

    Either way, this is still a successful haul and indicative of thousands of Kentucky voters being 'invested' in Alison Grimes.
