Share/Save/Bookmark

JUNEAU, Alaska — U.S. Sen. Mark Begich brought in more than $1.26 million during the last quarter, his biggest haul so far this cycle. But his campaign spent nearly $2 million toward his re-election bid.

As of June 30, the Alaska Democrat had about $2.2 million available.

Spokesman Max Croes says a big expense has been TV and radio buys, but says the campaign is well positioned financially.

Begich edged Republican rival Dan Sullivan in fundraising for the first time since Sullivan entered the race last October. Sullivan reported bringing in nearly $1.2 million, with $1.7 million available at the end of the quarter.

Other prominent Republicans in next month's primary are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller.

A fourth candidate, John Jaramillo, hasn't reported any fundraising.

Tuesday marked the reporting deadline.
