The Hill and Cochran’s fourth quarter fundraising

Bring on 2014 – fourth quarter fundraising winners and losers


Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.): $340,000 raised, $1.1 million cash on hand

Cochran had to unexpectedly kick a dormant campaign operation into action when state Sen. Chris McDaniel announced his plans to challenge him in the primary, and his meager fourth-quarter haul — more than $150,000 less than McDaniel’s — shows it.

Cochran brought in only $340,000 and has just $1.1 million cash on hand. That’s three times the $350,000 McDaniel has in the bank. He raised $500,000 in the 10 weeks after he announced his bid, and outside conservative groups are already spending to attack Cochran — meaning the fundraising gap he’ll have to make up is already much wider.
