Lugar's Million Dollar Quarter

Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) announced Monday that he will report raising over $973,000 during the first three months of the year, and ended March with a healthy $3 million cash on hand. The sum gives Lugar a sizable financial leg up over his main GOP opponent, state Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R).

"I'm enthusiastic about a great campaign that our supporters are waging," Lugar said in a statement. "We started this campaign months ago because I wanted to be clear about my intention to seek reelection in 2012."

Mourdock, who is running to Lugar's right in the primary, officially launched his campaign in late February, and he told Politico in late March that he expects to report raising around $125,000 during his first month of his campaign.
