Well, she sure isn’t milling in obscurity any more.

The latest Boston Globe/WBZ-TV/Suffolk University poll shows the Minnesota Democrat catapulting to third place, with 14 percent, ahead of former vice president Joe Biden, the once-presumptive front-runner for the nomination, and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who at one time topped the polls here. On Monday morning, Klobuchar announced that her campaign has raised more than $3 million in small online donations since Friday’s debate.
