Capito Has $3.4M For Homestretch; Tenant, $1.1M< < Back to
In rival U.S. Senate bids, Republican Shelley Moore Capito raised $1.6 million last quarter and still has $3.4 million in the bank, while Democrat Natalie Tennant brought in almost $1 million and has $1.1 million in her campaign account.
Capito takes the 3-to-1 cash edge into the race's homestretch, as the November 4 election approaches.
With plenty of TV advertising, the two had a high-spending quarter.
Capito, a seventh-term congresswoman, spent $3.1 million. Tennant, West Virginia's secretary of state, forked over $1.3 million.
The campaigns provided fundraising numbers Tuesday before their October 15 reporting deadline. The totals account for fundraising from July through September.
Capito and Tennant are vying for retiring Democrat Sen. Jay Rockefeller's seat. It's a key opening in the fight over a slim Democratic Senate majority.
