Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen has raised $1.19 million in the most recent federal fundraising period in her bid for a Senate seat from Nevada — just edging out Republican incumbent Sen. Dean Heller, who took in $1.17 million, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The fundraising covers a three-month period ending Sept. 30.
However, Heller has about $4.2 million in campaign cash on hand compared to Rosen's $1.2 million, the Journal reported.
"I thought the East Coast liberal groups could have done more than that for their handpicked candidate," Heller campaign spokesman Keith Schipper said of Rosen.
Rosen's campaign welcomed the contributions.
"We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of grassroots support for Jacky, and our robust fundraising will help ensure we have the momentum and resources to win this race next year," her campaign manager Danny Kazin said. "Nevadans are ready to repeal and replace Senator Heller with a problem-solver like Jacky Rosen who sticks to her convictions and puts solutions for working families ahead of Washington's partisan political games."
Rosen's campaign said she received 20,000 contributions during the reporting period and estimated about 92 percent were $100 or less, The Nevada Independent reported.
Heller is being challenged in the GOP primary by Danny Tarkanian, who told the newspaper he has raised about $307,000 in six weeks.
