Call it Even in Texas

There's even, then there is even. A review of the third quarter campaign finance reports from Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and former Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert shows that just $1,520 dollars separates the accounts of the two GOP Senate candidates. Dewhurst finished the period with $4,172,590 while Leppert ended with $4,171,070. You're not going to find two competing tallies closer than that. Both candidates have self-funded to the tune of seven figures so far, but Dewhurst has also raised a lot of money from donors.
