Murkowski maintains cash advantage over Trump-backed hopeful
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Sen. Lisa Murkowski continues to have a substantial cash advantage over her opponent backed by former President Donald Trump.
A filing with the Federal Election Commission shows the Republican Murkowski brought in more than $1.5 million in the three-month period ending March 31. Murkowski ended the quarter with $5.2 million on hand and no debt.
Republican Kelly Tshibaka, who is challenging Murkowski, reported raising $673,383 last quarter, a total that included donations from a fundraiser at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
As of March 31, Tshibaka had $967,600 on hand with just over $95,000 in debts. Filings from other candidates in the race weren’t immediately available.
