Senate Fundraising Update: On Deadline

July 15, 2011
Ben There, Done That: Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., won the day in the Cornhusker State, more than doubling the second quarter haul of state Attorney General Jon Bruning, the Republican frontrunner ($910,000 to $334,000). Nelson has over $2.9 million in the bank while Bruning has $1.3 million. GOP Treasurer Don Stenberg, a longshot candidate, only managed to raise about $65,000 in the second quarter, finishing with just under $16,000 in the bank. Always Bigger In Texas: As the GOP field in Texas braces for the likely entrance of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, former state Solicitor General Ted Cruz announced an impressive quarter Friday. Cruz, who has been a a favorite of several national conservative groups, raised nearly $800,000 and finished the period with nearly $1.6 million in the bank. Former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert, who is putting some of his own money into his campaign, raised $750,000 and also gave his campaign more of his own money. He now has $3.4 million in total cash on hand. Railroad Commissioner Elizabeth Ames Jones' GOP campaign said she raised nearly $313,000 in the quarter and had over $271,000 in the bank. No word yet from the Democratic frontrunner, Ricardo Sanchez. A Little Kind-ness Goes A Long Way Rep. Ron Kind, D-Wis., who is mulling a Senate run, raised an impressive $404,000, finishing the second quarter with over $478,000 in the bank. Those figures sound like the numbers of a candidate gearing up for a Senate race. Just Gill-in Out In The Summer: Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., turned in another very solid quarter, raising $3.07 million, ending with $5.84 million in the bank, the AP reported. Rick 'Em: Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., raised $461,000 during the second quarter and has $548,000 in the bank, according to his campaign.
