Connecticut: Dodd Announces $1.2M Second-Quarter Haul

Sen. Chris Dodd (D) raised more than $1.2 million from April through June for what is expected to be the toughest re-election campaign of his career.

“Unlike so many of his competitors, Chris’ fundraising took a back seat to his primary job: working for the people of Connecticut in the U.S. Senate on these and other important issues,— Dodd campaign manager Jay Howser said.

Also, according to the campaign, Dodd received a majority of individual donations from Nutmeg State residents. Dodd took heat in April when his first-quarter financial report showed only five Connecticut residents had donated to his campaign.

Public polls have shown Dodd trailing former Rep. Rob Simmons, who has a primary battle next year to win the GOP nomination. Simmons has raised $753,000 for his bid, former Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley (R) announced last week he raised $530,000 last quarter, and state Sen. Sam Caligiuri (R) announced he raised $125,000 for his campaign.
