Democratic Primary Frontrunners Pull Away

February 1, 2012

Frontrunning Democrats in contested Senate primaries put some more distance between themselves and their opponents during the 4th quarter, applying further pressure on the underdogs to make up ground in races that are looking more and more one-sided:

-- In Arizona: Former Surgeon General Richard Carmona's impressive $570,000 haul -- in six weeks -- outpaced former state Democratic Party Chairman Don Bivens's $230,000 take and additional $160,000 in self-funding. What's more, Carmona wasn't far off Republican Rep. Jeff Flake's $607,000 mark -- and Flake had a full quarter to raise money.

-- In New Mexico: Rep. Martin Heinrich's $483,000 4th quarter easily outpaced state Auditor Hector Balderas's $108,000. The cash on hand disparity is glaring as well: Heinrich has nearly $1.4 million in the bank while Balderas has just $434,000.

-- In Connecticut: -- Rep. Chris Murphy's $720,000 and $2.5 million cash on hand is better than the combined quarterly hauls and cash on hand totals of former Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz and state Rep. William Tong. Enough said.

-- In Hawaii: Rep. Mazie Hirono raised $624,000 and ended the period with $1 million in the bank. Former Rep. Ed Case still has not released his numbers. That doesn't portend a big figure for him, and Hirono has outraised him in previous quarters.
