Kara Eastman and Don Bacon are on track to spend more than any two candidates combined in any previous 2nd District race. That doesn’t include money that outside groups are spending separately from the campaigns.

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.

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.
