GOP dominates latest money race for Senate, governor

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Republican candidates for Senate and governor handily beat their Democratic opponents in fundraising during the latest three-month stretch.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Pence reported raising $2.9 million to Democrat John Gregg's $1 million, and Senate candidate Richard Mourdock raised $3 million to Democrat Joe Donnelly's $1.5 million. The amounts account for money raised in July, August and September.

The new figures show a clear edge for Republicans heading into the critical final weeks of their campaigns. But they probably mean more for the governor's race, which has not been saturated with outside spending the same way as the Senate race has.

Outside spending from Republican- and Democrat-aligned groups has far outpaced spending by Mourdock or Donnelly and has helped keep the Indiana Senate race competitive.
