Nelson Outraised By Bruning

Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., raised $443,000 during the third quarter, his campaign announced on Friday. That's less than half of what he brought in last quarter.

His report also means that barring a surprisingly strong showing from Republican state Treasurer Don Stenberg or any of the lower tier candidates, Attorney General Jon Bruning, the GOP frontrunner, is the surprise winner of the third quarter money chase in Nebraska.

Bruning's numbers were not eye-popping -- he raised about $583,000 -- but marked an improvement from prior lackluster quarters.

Nelson still sports a seven-figure cash on hand advantage. He finished the period with $3.1 million in the bank while Bruning wrapped up with $1.59 million cash on hand. Last quarter, Nelson raised $910,000.
