Rick Santorum has raised just over $1 million since his eight-vote loss in Iowa last night, his top strategist tells POLITICO.

John Brabender, who revealed that their server briefly went down under the crush last night, said almost all of the cash came online.

This is the kind of fund-raising, coming less than 24 hours since the caucuses began, that Santorum will need to ramp up his TV presence and organization.

If Santorum keeps up this pace, he can make significant ad buys in New Hampshire as well as South Carolina. The candidate had already planned on advertising in South Carolina. No doubt he can ramp that effort up as well.

As for New Hampshire, he won't spend a lot of money given Romney's huge lead, but he can introduce himself to New Hampshire Republicans and perhaps move past Jon Huntsman and Ron Paul into second place. That would position him nicely for a serious run for the top spot in South Carolina.
