Cotton, Pryor Campaigns Both Raise $1M+ in 3rd Quarter

The candidates running for the U.S. Senate race in Arkansas are both celebrating strong fundraising in the recently completed 3rd quarter.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The candidates running for the U.S. Senate race in Arkansas are both celebrating strong fundraising in the recently completed 3rd quarter.

Incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor was first to announce his campaign's figures of $1.04 million for the three-month period that started in July.

Pryor said in a morning email to supporters that the numbers reflect the strength of his campaign and his grassroots support across the state.

“Folks here know Mark as someone who always puts Arkansas first, and voters next year will have a clear choice between Congressman Cotton’s narrow, reckless agenda and Mark’s record as a responsible and reliable voice for Arkansas families,” said Jeff Weaver, Pryor for Senate campaign manager.

Pryor’s July-September fundraising total is on par with other with other winning Democrats from last election cycle -- including Sens. Tester, Brown and McCaskill -- who each raised just over $1 million in Q3 of 2011 in similarly competitive races.

As of October 1, grassroots supporters from all 75 counties in Arkansas have contributed to Pryor’s campaign.

The amount of cash on hand for the Pryor campaign totals $4.4 million.

Pryor's challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, released his campaign's 3rd quarter fundraising figures around noon. The total adds up to $1.069 million, with a reported $1.8 million cash on hand.

“Only two months into his campaign, it’s clear Arkansans are behind Tom Cotton. They are tired of Mark Pryor toeing the line for Barack Obama—voting with him 95% of the time to drive up the debt, raise taxes, and support Obamacare,” said Cotton For Senate Campaign Manager Justin Brasell. “Arkansans deserves a Senator like Tom Cotton, who will actually put Arkansas first.”

According to the report, neither campaign is carrying any debt.
