The Mike Haridopolos campaign says it raised more than $900,000 in the last quarter. No cash-on-hand numbers are available yet. Campaign spokesman Tim Baker said they're very pleased with the haul, which comes on the heels of a big deput fundraising quarter that brought in $2.4-million. He noted that he held no fundraising events while the legislature was in session and has been focused mainly on grass roots campaigning since the session.
"We expect the other guys will beat us,'' Baker said, noting that George LeMieux has been tapping into his Washington network and Adam Hasner has received "gushing coverage" in the press and has been raising money for five months.
