Flake In The Millionaire's Club

Rep. Jeff Flake's (R-Ariz.) Senate campaign announced raising over $1 million in the first three months of 2011, an impressive figure for a candidate that so far has no declared opponent in the race.

Taking into account money transferred from his congressional campaign, Flake's campaign says he will report $1.5 million cash on hand at the end of March.

Flake has endeared himself to much of the GOP establishment, and has a strong fundraising record as a member of the House. His reputation as a fiscal conservative immediately attracted the support of business-minded Republicans. The Club for Growth endorsed Flake immediately after he entered the race, and they've raised an impressive sum on his behalf, bringing in $100,000 in the first 24 hours after giving him their backing.

And considering that Flake -- who caught a break late last week when Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) decided not to mount a Senate bid -- has no declared opponent in either party yet, it does not look like he will have to spend much money any time soon.
