GOP Raises Robust Sums in Open Senate Races

Thursday, 15 Jul 2010 12:45 PM

Republican fundraising is impressive in some open Senate races, although the party is counting on rich self-funders in several states.

Republican Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania raised more than $3 million in the quarter that ended June 30. His campaign said it had $4.6 million on hand.

Democrat Joe Sestak, who defeated incumbent Arlen Specter in a tough primary, raised $1.9 million for the quarter. He had about $2 million.

In Kentucky, Republican nominee Rand Paul raised $1.1 million in the quarter. Democrat Jack Conway raised nearly the same amount from donors, and he lent his campaign another $400,000.

Some Democratic senators have ample sums to spend. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has raised $19 million so far. His campaign had about $9 million on hand on June 30.

Quarterly campaign finance reports are due Thursday.
