Sen. Mark Begich announced that he raised more than $1.05 million in the first quarter of 2014, leaving him with more than $2.818 million cash on hand. It was one of his biggest
his biggest fundraising hauls ever. From his press release:
“Mark Begich is proud to have the support of Alaskans who know his record of successfully fighting to keep the F-16’s in Fairbanks and fighting to drill in the National Petroleum Reserve, the false attack ads from Outside groups supporting Mark’s opponents can’t change that,” said Max Croes, Alaskans for Begich Communications Director.
More than 1,500 Alaskans donated to Begich.
The GOP candidates for his seat – Mead Treadwell, Dan Sullivan, and Joe Miller — have yet to release fundraising totals. However, people have told me Sullivan will out-raise Begich in the quarter.
