Senate FEC Wrap: The Lingle Life

Making her-story: Hirono eyes three Senate firsts.(Rebecca Breyer/AP)

January 25, 2012

A couple of notable Senate fundraising figures from the day as the numbers keep trickling in ahead of next Tuesday's deadline:

-- Linda Lingle: The former Republican governor put up a huge $1.76 million figure in Hawaii. Lingle, who is known for her strong fundraising ability, easily outpaced the Democratic frontrunner, Rep. Mazie Hirono, who raised $624,000 during the fourth quarter. (It's worth noting that Hirono has $1 million in the bank while Lingle has not released her cash on hand figure).

Expect outside groups on both sides to play in this race, bringing parity to the money chase. But Lingle's early haul is an awfully impressive show of strength.

-- Jon Bruning: Bruning raised over $400,000 and finished the period with $1.7 million in the bank. It's likely to be the best haul in the GOP field, but it's far from impressive. Treasurer Don Stenberg's anemic five-figure fundraising saw a huge boost (he raised about $250,000 in the fourth quarter) after Sen. Jim DeMint's, R-S.C., PAC endorsed him.

Bruning has a huge leg up in the cash on hand race, but his burn rate -- he only raised his cash on hand total from the last quarter by $100,000 despite raising $400,000 during the quarter -- isn't ideal. Still, unless former Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey runs, if Bruning emerges from the primary, he'll be all but assured a spot in the 113th Congress.
