Murphy has $2.2 M on hand for the final phase of the U.S. Senate throwdown

Democratic U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy’s campaign reports today that the report they are filing with the Federal Election Committee today will say he raised about $3.03 million in the last quarter for the U.S. Senate race. That’s on top of $5.5 million reported at the end of July. He has $2.2 million on hand for the last weeks of the campaign.

No word yet from Republican Linda McMahon’s campaign, which had $2.4 million on hand at the July deadline and had raised about $14 million, including more than $12 million in loans to the campaign from McMahon, the wrestling tycoon who spent $50 million of her own money in 2010 in a losing U.S. Senate campaign against Richard Blumenthal.
