Rep. Don Bacon, R-Neb., entered the last few weeks before Election Day with $650,000 in the bank, while Democratic challenger Kara Eastman had about $400,000 for the final stretch.
From Oct. 1 to Oct. 17, Bacon had raised about $120,000, compared with about $325,000 for Eastman, according to the last campaign finance reports.
He’s still ahead of her in overall fundraising, though — $2.7 million to $2.4 million.
Combined, they’ve raised more than $5 million, likely making this the most expensive 2nd Congressional District election ever.
In the Senate race, Republican Sen. Deb Fischer had almost $2 million in the bank. She raised about $500,000 during this period, for a total of more than $6 million this cycle.
Democratic challenger Jane Raybould had about $140,000 in the bank. Her $620,000 haul this period puts her overall fundraising at about $1.8 million.
Election Day is Nov. 6. Friday is the last day to register to vote, and you must do it in person at your county election office.
