FEC Winners And Losers, Senate Edition

In Missouri, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) raised over a million dollars, easily outpacing her GOP competition. Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) each posted seven-figure hauls while in Florida, Bill Nelson's $2 million, while not as high as Haridopolos' figure, is still solid. Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) also posted seven figure hauls. Losers: The Declared Missouri Republican Field: Former Treasurer Sarah Steelman (R) put up very disappointing figures during the first three months of the year, raising just over $186,000. Republican Ed Martin could not even match that, bringing in a lackluster $162,000. The Republican who had the most impressive period is not even in the race -- Rep. Todd Akin (R), who is mulling a bid, finished the period with over $900,000 in the bank. Former Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz (D): Bysiewicz reported raising $500,000, which would be a perfectly respectable haul -- but her primary challenger, Rep. Chris Murphy, raised double that amount, taking in $1.1 million. And while he hasn't gotten an outright endorsement yet, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Patty Murray talked up Murphy at a briefing last week without mentioning Bysiewicz. Former Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams (R): Williams brought in $500,000 during the quarter, but both former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert (R) and former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz (R) brought in over a million dollars during the quarter. Texas is an expensive state, and with the possibility of self-funding Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (R) also entering the race, a quick fundraising pace will be even more necessary to keep up with the pack.
