Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., raised $1.6 million during the first three months of 2012, his campaign announced on Wednesday. Nelson has over $9.5 million on hand.
The Democrat's war chest is imposing compared to his Republican competition. Rep. Connie Mack, the Republican frontrunner, announced last week that he raised just over $1 million dollars in the first quarter and has over $1.3 million in the bank.
Mack's Republican opponent, former Sen. George LeMieux, has not yet released his first quarter numbers.
