Blunt Wins 3rd Quarter Fundraising, Maintains Cash Advantage

Congressman Roy Blunt inched out Robin Carnahan in third quarter campaign fundraising to give himself about a $430,000 cash on hand advantage over the Democratic Secretary of State about a year before the election.

During the last three months, Blunt reported raising about $1.3 M to Carnahan's $1.07 M, about a $230,000 difference. That leaves Blunt with $2.27 M of cash on hand to spend, compared to Carnahan's $1.84 M.

Carnahan's campaign noted that the $1,071,572 raised between July and September added up to their best quarter yet. Blunt's campaign release seemed to taunt Carnahan with this headline: "Left-Wing Money Galore Still Leaves Liberal Robin Carnahan in Last Place."

"Carnahan's allies including ACORN and the League of Conservative Voters have gone negative, spending nearly $500,000 since April on false television and radio ads attacking Roy Blunt for voting against the energy tax and the proposed government-takeover of health care," reads Blunt's third quarter fundraising release. "Where in the world is Robin Carnahan?," said Blunt spokesman Rich Chrismer "Our candidate is traveling the state with a message of common sense Missouri solutions, visiting with voters, telling people where he stands, answering questions and standing up for Missouri values."
