In something of an apples-and-oranges comparison, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock raised and spent more money in the second quarter than Democratic rival Joe Donnelly.
The period included the run-up to each party's May 8 primary election. Donnelly was unopposed for the Democratic nomination, meaning he didn't have to campaign at nearly the pace as Mourdock, who challenged and defeated six-term Sen. Richard Lugar in the country's highest-profile primary.
Mourdock's campaign said Friday it collected $1.81 million in contributions in April, May and June and had $889,000 in cash at the end of the period.
A day earlier, Donnelly's campaign said it raised nearly $925,000 in the quarter and finished with $1.38 million in cash.
Each campaign issued statements saying it was pleased with its second-quarter fundraising.
Donnelly, the congressman for Indiana's 2nd District, had received $1.71 million in donations before the second quarter, while Mourdock, the state treasurer, had collected $1.96 million, according to reports the candidates filed with the Federal Election Commission.
