Campaign Finance

Fund-raising results from the first half of 1991 show Republicans once again outgunning Democrats. Democratic campaign committees took in a mere $9.7 million to the GOP's $40.9 million. Individually, the war chests of Senators Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) and Alfonse D'Amato (R-N. Y.) are bulging with $2.6 million each. Minority Leader Bob Dole (R-Kan.) has $2 million, suggesting that he'll run next year despite contrary rumors. Senator Warren Rudman (R-N. H.) has only $50,000, fueling speculation he won't be back. Likewise for North Carolina Democrat Terry Sanford, who has only $70,000 on hand.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
