Lugar Raises $840,000 In Third Quarter

October 7, 2011

Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., had another productive fundraising period, putting further pressure on state Treasurer Richard Mourdock to show that he can keep pace in the money chase.

Lugar's campaign announced the incumbent raised $840,000 during the third quarter and finished the period with over $3.8 million in the bank. Mourdock, who has struggled to raise money so far, has not yet released his third quarter figures. Mourdock ended the second quarter with just $214,000 in the bank.

"We are confident that our 3Q receipts will be greater than our 2nd quarter figures when we file with the FEC next week," said Mourdock spokesman Chris Conner.

Meanwhile, national Tea Party group FreedomWorks is expected endorse Mourdock later this month, according to sources. FreedomWorks PAC announced Friday it will be making an October 21st announcement in Indianapolis regarding the Senate race, but the group has not specified what the nature of the announcement is.

Over time, Mourdock has earned the backing of other national Tea Party and conservative groups and figures including the Tea Party Express and former Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle. But none of the endorsements will mean much unless they translate to an uptick in the Republican's fundraising pace.
