Begich Takes In About $810K During 3Q
U.S. Sen. Mark Begich took in more than $810,000 during the last quarter for his re-election bid.
The Alaska Democrat reported ending the quarter, Sept. 30, with $2.4 million on hand.
Begich’s total includes about $390,000 in individual contributions and about $370,000 in contributions from political committees. So far this election cycle, he has raised $4.8 million.
Begich is gearing up for what is expected to be a hotly contested race next year. At least five Republicans have announced plans to run, the most prominent being Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, former state Natural Resources commissioner Dan Sullivan and Joe Miller.
Treadwell, who entered the race in June, reported raising nearly $200,000 between July 1 and Sept. 30. Sullivan announced his bid earlier this week. Miller’s numbers weren’t immediately available.
