CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Federal campaign finance reports show Republican U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito has extended her substantial fundraising lead in West Virginia's U.S. Senate race.
Capito is vying to replace retiring Democratic U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller. Her quarterly campaign finance report shows she had $3.2 million in cash on hand at the end of September. That's up from the $2.8 million in cash on hand Capito had at the end of June.
In September, Democrat Natalie Tennant announced that she was also running for Senate. Her campaign finance report shows she raised about $153,000 in the last few weeks of the month. Her report says she spent about $2,000 of that. Capito's report says she has spent about $855,000 on the race so far.
