Landrieu outpaces Cassidy in latest fundraising


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu continues to outraise her nearest competitor in Louisiana's Senate race.

Landrieu's campaign announced Monday that she raised more than $1.8 million during the most recent fundraising period that ran from January through March. The Democrat, who is running for a fourth term, reports having $7.5 million in her campaign account for her re-election bid.

The senator's main challenger, Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, reported that he raised more than $1.2 million for the same quarter and has more than $5 million in the bank.

The election is set for Nov. 4.

At least two other Republicans have said they plan to run for the Senate seat: state Rep. Paul Hollis and retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness. Maness said he raised $405,000 in the latest quarter.
