HELENA (AP) — U.S. Rep. Denny Rehberg's campaign says the Republican raised $914,456 over the last three months in his 2012 election challenge of Democratic Sen. Jon Tester.
That's about $300,000 less than Tester raised for the quarter that ended June 30.
Rehberg reported spending $341,865 for the period, leaving him with $1.5 million in the bank.
Rehberg is in his sixth term as Montana's only congressman. He is trying to unseat the freshman Tester in a campaign that has gotten heated early.
Friday's report details Rehberg's first full quarter of raising money since he entered the race earlier this year.
Tester reported this week that he raised $1.2 million for the three-month period and has $2.3 million cash on hand.
