ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Incumbents in Alaska's U.S. House and Senate races continue to rake in the cash -- and spend it.
In her second-quarter federal elections report, Sen. Lisa Murkowski's campaign says it spent just over $215,000 -- more than twice what her Republican primary challenger Joe Miller did.
Miller, widely considered Murkowski's strongest opponent, only has about $125,000 cash on hand. Murkowski's campaign war chest remains over $2 million.
Federal records show Rep. Don Young has spent more than $500,000 so far. His Democratic challenger, Harry Crawford, has spent less than one-fifth of that. Young has $221,000 in cash on hand, while Crawford only has about $32,000.
Republican Sheldon Fisher has raised about $62,000 to take on Young in the primary election. That figure includes about $50,000 of Fisher's own money. He has about $36,000 on hand.
