Ac­cord­ing to pre-primary fun­drais­ing re­ports filed with the FEC, Rep. Bill Cas­sidy (R) raised about $629,000 this re­port­ing peri­od, com­pared to Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D) $576,000. Cas­sidy now has a slight cash ad­vant­age, $5.6 mil­lion in the bank to Landrieu’s $5.5 mil­lion. Over­all Landrieu has raised about $14 mil­lion this cycle to Cas­sidy’s $8.6 mil­lion.

OUT­SIDE HELP: A su­per PAC sup­port­ing Cas­sidy, Cit­izens for Con­ser­vat­ive Lead­er­ship, is pledging a six-fig­ure me­dia cam­paign on his be­half. The group is based in Wash­ing­ton D.C. and seeks to help can­did­ates who ad­voc­ate for free mar­ket, smal­ler gov­ern­ment prin­ciples. Its first ad high­lights the im­port­ance of Cas­sidy’s race in the battle to flip the Sen­ate. (New Or­leans Times Pi­cay­une)
