Starting Lineup: Bill Nelson's Numbers

February 3, 2011
Steelman raised a respectable $208,000 in only about a month and finished the year with $189,000 in her bank account. Steelman had a fundraising network already in place from her 2008 gubernatorial bid, but no leftover money from that race could be used in her Senate campaign. Martin, who raised well over $1 million in his run against Rep. Russ Carnahan (D) last year, hasn't gotten going yet -- reporting only $44,000 on hand. Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill brought in $136,000. McCaskill has a warchest that is significantly bigger than either Martin's or Steelman's -- she has $905,000 in her account. More FEC Fun: The last of the Senate FEC reports are now live and Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D) also posted a decent year end report. He hauled in $187,000 in the fourth quarter and finished the year with $723,000. The big question for Whitehouse is who will challenge him, and WPRI reported Wednesday that former Gov. Donald Carcieri -- who would likely be the GOP's top contender -- is considering the the race. Don't Miss: The Hotline's handy chart of all the Senate fundraising numbers here. (Subscription required). The Starting Five 1. Looks like the Tea Party challenge to Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar (R) is forming as state Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R) is preparing to formally enter the race. 2. Speaking of the Tea Party, Bachmann, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will host the first Tea Party town hall next Tuesday. 3. Veteran political handicapper Stuart Rothenberg says former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is a "frail" frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination. 4. Carolyn Goodman, the wife of Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman is running to succeed her husband this year. 5. In case you missed it, ESPN college football analyst Craig James is apparently considering a run for the open Texas Senate seat and, for some reason, thinks Lubbock would back him even though he was instrumental in getting Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach fired. Updated at 12:58 p.m. with Martin's fundraising numbers.
