Dodd Totals More than $1 Million in Receipts in First Quarter

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd’s shaky status in Connecticut hasn’t scared away too many donors, it seems.

The five-term Democratic incumbent reported just over $1 million in total receipts in the first three months of 2009, his report to the Federal Election Commission states.

Dodd ended March with $1.4 million in the bank.  

Dodd’s cash is likely to give him an edge against two Republican challengers, former Rep. Rob Simmons and state Sen. Sam Caligiuri , who both announced they would run for the seat in March.  

Recent polls show Dodd trailing both men in hypothetical match-ups, but neither Simmons nor Caligiuri has the name recognition or fundraising clout of Connecticut’s senior senator.
