RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Without a Democratic rival for the Senate nomination, former Gov. Tim Kaine has expanded his fundraising advantage over Republican George Allen, the frontrunner in the four-way June 12 GOP Senate primary.
Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission show Allen raised nearly $751,000 but spent about $640,000 over the month ending May 23. That brings his total to date to about $6.8 million with about $2.7 million in the bank.
The FEC had not posted Kaine's totals by midday, but he said in a news release he raised about $1.2 million through May 23, taking his total raised so far to $8.6 million.
That left him with about $2.5 million on hand -- about the same amount of television ad time he says he's reserved for the fall campaign.
