Murphy Doubles Bysiewicz's First Quarter Haul

April 6, 2011

Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) will report that he has doubled the first quarter fundraising haul of his Democratic opponent in the Connecticut Senate race, former Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz's (D). Murphy announced Wednesday that that his campaign will report raising $1.1 million in the first quarter 0f 2011. Bysiewicz announced last week she will report raising over $500,000 during the first three months of the year.

Bysiewicz indirectly acknowledged that Murphy would likely outraise her when she announced her total.

"The truth is, I may be outraised in this race," Bysiewicz wrote. "I'm sure the corporate PACs and DC lobbyists are lining up to support other candidates. After all, I don't have cozy relationships with DC insiders."

Bysiewicz's campaign also cast Murphy as a Washington insider when he racked up endorsements from other members of Connecticut's congressional delegation.

But Murphy said his sum was raised from 1,600 contributors, 1,100 of which gave $100 or less; that 94 percent of the contributions came from individual donors; and that 85 percent of contributions came from Connecticut residents.

Murphy and Bysiewicz remain the only major candidates for retiring-Sen. Joseph Lieberman's (I) seat. On the Republican side, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon, the 2010 Senate nominee, is considering another run.
