Tester, facing a tougher challenge in Montana against Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.), said Thursday he had $3.6 million cash on hand. A Rasmussen poll released in June showed the Republican challenger with an edge, 49 percent to 47.
This grassroots campaign continues to gain momentum because Montanans know Jon is up against secretive, out-of-state special interests that are spending millions to buy votes for Congressman Dennis Rehberg,” Tester campaign manager Preston Elliott said in a statement. “Montanans support Jon because they know he’s an honest Montana farmer who makes responsible decisions, holds himself accountable, and defends our freedoms.”
Candidates are required to file their campaign finance reports for the second quarter to the Federal Election Commission by July 15.
