Early Money News

This last Wednesday marked the end of the first reporting quarter for the finances of candidates for federal office. As is always the case, the money numbers tend to dribble out slowly into the public realm. At TPM, Eric Kleefield has a summary of the earliest news.
Probably the most interesting item is the $2 million that Lt. Gov. Bill Halter raised just in March in his primary challenge to Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR). It’s also worth knowing that embattled Sen. Harry Reid now has $10 million in cash on hand for his tough campaign for survival.
