Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Deb Fischer has outraised Democrat Bob Kerrey in the latest three-month reporting period.
Fischer announced Monday that her campaign raised more than $2.4 million during the quarter that ended in September. Kerrey's campaign raised $1.7 million.
The overall amount each campaign has collected is closer, with Kerrey having raised nearly $4.6 million and Fischer raising $4.1 million.
Both candidates are seeking to replace Democratic U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson, who is retiring.
Kerrey, a former Nebraska governor and U.S. senator, joined the race in March. Fischer, a seasoned state senator, filed papers for her U.S. Senate bid in 2011, and emerged the winner of a four-way Republican primary race.
