Money race: Kaine outraises Allen in third quarter

The Tim Kaine Senate campaign won the money race in the third quarter of 2012, taking in $4.5 million in donations to outpace the George Allen campaign, which raised $3.47 million.

The numbers reflect campaign activity from the July 1-Sept. 30 period.

The Allen campaign did have the advantage in one area: cash on hand. The Republican reported $2.57 million cash on hand at the beginning of the fourth quarter of the year. The Kaine campaign has $1 million cash on hand.

The Kaine campaign had announced earlier this week an additional $3 million in ad buys for the fall campaign.

“Even in the face of more than $13 million in false ads run by outside groups, largely funded by secret money, supporters from all stripes have stood up and affirmed what we’ve known all along – grassroots support will be what wins this race. As we enter the last month of the campaign, we are in a good position to share Governor Kaine’s message with voters across the Commonwealth and optimistic about finishing strong,” Kaine campaign manager Mike Henry said.
