JUNEAU, Alaska - The Latest on Alaska's U.S. Senate race (all times local):
Independent U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Stock reported bringing in about $150,000 during the latest fundraising period, lagging behind the totals raised by incumbent Republican Lisa Murkowski and Libertarian Joe Miller.
According to a summary of her Federal Election Commission filing, Stock's total from July 28 through Sept. 30 includes about $27,000 that she contributed herself. As of Sept. 30, Stock had nearly $110,000 available.
Miller reported raising nearly $200,000, which his campaign said came following his early-September entry into the race. About $4,000 of that came from Miller. He ended September with nearly $280,000.
Murkowski, meanwhile, reported raising about $415,000 between July 28 and Sept. 30. She ended the period with nearly $1.6 million on hand.
Libertarian U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller has reported raising nearly $200,000 for his campaign during the latest fundraising period.
Miller ended September with nearly $280,000 on hand. He entered the race with nearly $100,000 available, money left over from a prior run.
While the reporting period spans from July through September, Miller's campaign says his haul dates to early last month, when he entered the race as a last-minute replacement on the Libertarian ticket.
Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto says the Federal Election Commission filing will be amended to account for at least $7,000 in in-kind contributions. He says examples of such contributions include airline miles and tickets.
Miller is one of three main challengers to Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who reported raising about $415,000 between July 28 and Sept. 30, and ending the period with about $1.6 million.
Independent Margaret Stock and Democrat Ray Metcalfe haven't released their fundraising numbers yet.
