Democrats did not trail everywhere:
- In Washington State, where Dino Rossi entered the race in late May, Sen. Patty Murray, D, narrowly outraised him in the quarter.
- In Wisconsin, Russ Feingold raised more than his wealthy challenger, Ron Johnson, who has promised to spend significant amounts of his own money on the race.
- In Colorado, Sen. Michael Bennet, D, outraised both of his Republican challengers substantially: $1.2 million to $900,000 for former Lieutenant Governor Jane Norton,R, and $420,592 for Ken Buck, R.
- And in Nevada Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D, just barely outraised former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle, R, $2.4 million to $2.3 million. Reid spent more than he raised last quarter. He has raised a total of $19.2 million for his race, and he’s spent more than $10 million of it already.
