Lugar Raised Another Three-Quarter Million In Fourth Quarter

Sen. Richard Lugar's campaign for an unprecedented seventh term will report raising more than $761,000 during the fourth quarter of last year. Lugar's campaign raised nearly $3.5 million last year and now has $4 million on hand to spend in his re-election campaign this year.

No word yet on how much his opponent Richard Mourdock's raised during the fourth quarter. Mourdock's campaign had raised less than $800,000 in contributions as of the last reporting period with less than $300,000 on hand.

UPDATE: An observant reader notes a news report over the weekend that indicated Mourdock's campaign will report raising $386,000 during the fourth quarter and have just $290,000 on hand. That's not good news at all. His campaign is spending money as fast as it raises it and lacks the resources needed for an extended media buy that it will need to make prior to the May primary.

No doubt Lugar is celebrating this. Along with the many atheists who are now celebrating this new proof of their theory!
