Sharron Angle, the Republican nominee for Senate in Nevada against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, has been raking in some serious cash since the lead-up to her primary win on June 8 -- though she still lags far behind Reid in overall cash on hand.
Angle's campaign ended the pre-primary financial filing period on May 19 with only $132,000 cash on hand, and $170,000 in debts, having gone through her resources to get her upset win against the incredibly self-destructive Sue Lowden. However, her campaign has now announced that they've raised $2.29 million since then through the end of June, and now have zero debt.
Reid brought in less in that time, at only $1.2 million, with a total of $2.4 million for the whole second quarter, with no debt, according to numbers released by the campaign. Reid, however, still has a huge advantage in cash on hand: Reid $8.94 million, Angle $1.77 million, a 5-1 ratio in favor of Reid.
The TPM Poll Average currently gives Angle a lead of 44.4%-42.3%.
