Mo Money for the GOP

The great news we can report today is Republicans are out raising Democrats in nearly a dozen open Senate races. Some Democrats are so far behind they me already ne out of time. Ohio Republican nominee Rob Portman has $8.8 million compared to the $1 million raised by Democrat Lee Fisher. Just because they have more money does not mean they will win but if the GOP can win ten seats they could seize control of the Senate. Illinois, Republican Mark Kirk raised $2.3 million, while Democrat Alexi Giannoulias raised about $900,000. Indiana, Republican Dan Coats raised more than $1 million in the quarter, while Democrat Brad Ellsworth took in about $600,000. Connecticut. Former pro wrestling magnate Linda McMahon has poured $21.5 million into her campaign; she reported having $3.2 million. Her Democratic opponent, state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, had only $2.1 million in cash Pennsylvania, Republican Pat Toomey raised $7.6 million while Democratic nominee Joe Sestak, has only $3.9 million. Democrats might have California, as Senator Barbara Boxer has an early fundraising lead over her GOP challenger, Carly Fiorina raising $15.9 million. Fiorina is a multimillionaire so she can pour huge amounts of her own money into the election. The other big one is Nevada, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had $9 million at the quarter’s end. This is compared to $1.8 million for Republican challenger Sharron Angle who did raise an impressive $2.3 million from late May to June 30. In Missouri, Republican Roy Blunt raised $6.7 million and Democrat Robin Carnahan raised $5.1. In Delaware, Republican Mike Castle raised $2.6 million way ahead of Democrat Chris Coons with only one million so far. These are all number but in the end on November second we only need 10 to win.
