"I'm thrilled that so many Alaskans realize the importance of my election to the Senate. This race is of critical importance to Alaska and the generosity of all my supporters is greatly appreciated. After months of advertising and great events we have over $1.5 million cash on hand," Senator Murkowski said.
Quoting a news release, the number of individual Alaskan contributors is up 29% over last year with the total number of Alaskan donors reaching 58% of all campaign contributors. "The great percentage of Alaskan contributions to this race is very important to me. Alaskans have expressed how important it is to have a unified Congressional Delegation in Washington D.C.," Senator Murkowski noted. "Ted, Don and I are fighting for Alaska every day as one voice doing what is right for Alaska. Our seniority is crucial for Alaska and it is important we have the best team possible in Washington D.C."
Based on her opponents' releases, Murkowski estimates that her campaign still maintains a large cash on hand advantage by more than $600,000.
Other candidates for Alaska's U.S. Sentate seat include Tony Knowles (D), Don R. Wright (D); Scott A. Kohlhass (AK Libertarian); Jim Dore (R); and Daniel DeNardo (AK Independence).
