Stevens pleased with fundraising efforts following record quarter

Despite the ongoing federal investigations of Senator Ted Stevens, he had a big take of campaign contributions during the third quarter. As we reported yesterday, the Stevens campaign raised just over $463,000 between July and September. That was more than Stevens raised in any quarter since 2002.

Nearly $304,000 came from individuals, more than $142,000 from Political Action Committees (PACs), and some $16,000 came from joint fundraising committees. The Stevens campaign returned $5,700 in contributions, most of that to PACs. The quarter left Stevens with a campaign war chest of nearly $1.1 million.
