Capito and Tennant Release Stats
Campaign officials say Republican Shelley Moore Capito raked in more than $1.3 million for her West Virginia U.S. Senate bid last quarter, while Democrat Natalie Tennant raised about $777,000. Congresswoman Capito's campaign called the haul her best fundraising period to date. Capito has almost $5 million available in campaign cash. Tennant, West Virginia's secretary of state, is headed into July with $1.5 million in the bank. Campaigns for the two candidates released fundraising numbers Wednesday before their July 15 reporting deadline. Capito and Tennant are vying for retiring Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller's seat.
