Share/Save/Bookmark

AUGUSTA, Maine — Republican Sen. Susan Collins' campaign has about seven times more cash on hand than her challenger, Democrat Shenna Bellows.

Collins' campaign said Wednesday that it raised about $900,000 in the latest fundraising period. Bellows' campaign said it raised $563,000.

Collins' team is reporting that it has more than $4 million cash on hand. Bellows has more than $580,000 left in her campaign war chest.

Josh Tardy, co-chair of Collins' campaign, says the contributions have put it in an excellent position as the race gears up this fall.

Bellows Campaign Manager Katie Mae Simpson says that the Democrat's grassroots support has been significant and continues to grow. She says the average donation is $60.

Overall, Collins has raised nearly $5.4 million and Bellows has raised more than $1.32 million.
