JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Democratic Secretary of State Jason Kander has raised more money recently for his bid for U.S. Senate but incumbent GOP Sen. Roy Blunt has more cash on hand.
Kander’s campaign on Wednesday announced he raised more than $3 million between July and the end of September.
The Missouri Democratic Party’s federal account raised more than $780,000 that could be used to help Kander.
Blunt announced he raised more than $1.8 million for his re-election campaign. The Missouri Republican Party federal account raised more than $1 million.
That leaves Blunt with more than $4 million in cash on hand to spend in the final weeks before the Nov. 8 election.
Kander’s campaign says he has nearly $3.5 million to spend.
