Anchorage Daily News: Begich has big lead in fundraising over GOP rivals

U.S. Sen. Mark Begich held a huge fundraising lead over his Republican rivals during the latest reporting period.

The first-term Democrat, who expects a tough campaign, reported bringing in about $993,000 between April 1 and June 30, and ending the quarter with $2 million available for his re-election bid next year. Republicans see the Senate seat as critical to their efforts to regain control of the chamber.
