Wilson Down in Polls, But She Out-raised Heinrich in Campaign Cash

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Heather Wilson might not be winning in any poll taken, but she's apparently raised more money than Democrat Martin Heinrich  in the past three months.

According to Wilson's campaign, she raised $2,152,659 between July 1 and September 30 and has $1,031,884 cash on hand. Wilson has raised $6.2 million for her campaign since jumping in the contest last year.

Heinrich's campaign was close. A spokeswoman said he raised about $1.96 million in the last quarter and that he has $1 million cash on hand. Heinrich has raised more than $5.85 million since the start of his campaign began last year.

The complete quarterly reports, which are due Monday, weren't available from either campaign.
