Blumenthal raises $1.6 mil, loans his campaign $500,000
Rep. Richard Blumenthal has hammered his opponent, Republican Linda McMahon, for her self-funded, multi-million-dollar campaign. But that doesn’t mean he’s above dipping into his own (albeit leaner) pockets to fuel his U.S. Senate bid.
Blumenthal’s campaign announced tonight that he had raised $1.6 million in the 3rd quarter. He also loaned his campaign $500,000.
That sum still pales in comparison to the $50 million McMahon has vowed to spend, from her own fortune, on her campaign. A McMahon’s spokesman said the campaign would not release its 3rd quarter report before its publicly available, which could be Friday or later.
