Reid Raises $15 Million So Far for 2010 Campaign

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) campaign announced Friday that the four-term incumbent raised more than $2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, pushing his total receipts to $15 million for his 2010 re-election campaign. Of his fourth-quarter sum, $1.5 million came from individuals and $385,000 from political committees.The campaign, however, also spent more than $2 million in the fourth quarter, much of it to run a series of television ads touting Reid’s accomplishments and biography. He still ended the year with $8.7 million in the bank.Reid indicated early last year that he planned on raising $25 million for the race, an unheard of sum in Nevada politics and one that Reid seems on target to exceed.He’s gotten a big head start on the field of prospective GOP challengers, who lag well behind in fundraising, though a number have personal wealth they can tap into.And the GOP nominee is likely to receive a groundswell of financial support from Republicans around the country looking to take out the Senate’s top Democrat.
