Democrat Campbell sees fundraising boost in Senate runoff
BATON ROUGE - Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Foster Campbell's fundraising has spiked ahead of the Dec. 10 runoff, as his campaign is bolstered by Democratic donors from around the nation.
Campbell had brought in $1.7 million for his campaign through Oct. 19 over nearly a year of fundraising - $984,000 from donors and $750,000 in loans. Since then, he's raised $2.5 million, much of it after securing his spot in the runoff.
Campbell's latest finance report was released late Tuesday by his campaign. It shows $1.4 million cash on hand for the final days of campaigning.
Louisiana's election will settle the last Senate race in the country. Campbell, a member of the Public Service Commission, faces Republican state Treasurer John Kennedy in the runoff. Kennedy's campaign hasn't released its latest campaign finance report.
