Campaign Coffers Growing For 2004 Races

October 16, 2003 — Posted at 11:28 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR — Senator Blanche Lincoln had $2.4 million in her campaign treasury as of September 30th -- but she has yet to draw an opponent in her race for a second second six-year term.

Lincoln, a Democrat, raised $3.51 million through last month. The numbers come from campaign disclosure forms filed with the Federal Election Commission. In the current election cycle, Lincoln has spent $1.07 million.

For the cycle, 55 percent of Lincoln's campaign money has come from political action committees and 45 percent from individuals. In her 1998 Senate campaign, Lincoln raised $3.06 million and in defeating Republican Fay Boozman. He raised $1.1 million.

Three Republicans -- former Benton County Sheriff Andy Lee, state Senator Jim Holt of Springdale and former state Representative Jake Files of Fort Smith -- have expressed interest in running. 

In congressional campaigns:
First District Congressman Marion Berry has raised $319,455, and has $176,421 in the bank. Challenging Republican Vernon Humphrey of Mountain View has raised $5150.
Second District Congressman Vic Snyder does not accept campaign contributions until 90 days before the election. State House Republican Leader Marvin Parks of Greenbrier has formed an exploratory committee to consider challenging Snyder.
Third District Congressman John Boozman has raised $216,760 and has $188,162 on hand. Challenging state Representative Jan Judy of Fayetteville has raised $12,338.
Fourth District Congressman Mike Ross has raised $398,688 and has $248,053 on hand with no opponent.
