Murkowski brings in nearly $1.1M in latest quarter

U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski brought in nearly $1.1 million toward her re-election bid during the latest fundraising period.

A summary of her disclosure report, released by her campaign Wednesday, shows she had nearly $2.3 million available at the end of the quarter, June 30. At this point during her last campaign, she had close to $1.1 million available.

Her campaign, in a release, described her fundraising efforts as moving at an “historic pace” for a U.S. Senate candidate in Alaska.

Murkowski, a Republican who won re-election in 2010 with a write-in campaign, is up for re-election next year.

The race, so far, has not attracted much attention. There are no candidates listed yet with the state Division of Elections. Murkowski filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.
