From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Sen. Arlen Specter raised $1.15 million for his reelection during the last three months of 2009 and ended the year with nearly $8.7 million in the bank, his campaign announced yesterday.
The campaign for his challenger in Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary May 18, Rep. Joe Sestak, said Sestak would report raising about $650,000 in the fourth quarter and ending the year with $5.1 million on hand.
Sestak spokesman Gary Ritterstein said that Specter was spending money at a “dangerous rate” and that Sestak would be competitive.
Said Specter campaign manager Christopher Nicholas: “The senator is well-situated financially to win a contested primary and then beat the GOP nominee in the fall.”
