Sasse leads GOP Senate race fundraising in Neb.

Posted: Updated:

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) The 2014 U.S. Senate race in Nebraska is shaping up to be an expensive one.

Midland University President Ben Sasse is making his first run for public office and raised a whopping $815,000 for the quarter that ended Sept. 30. That's more than any other candidate in the race.

Sasse has more than $806,000 cash on hand.

That's near twice as much as the $427,000 cash on hand reported Tuesday by former Nebraska State Treasurer Shane Osborn in the quarter. Osborn raised $366,500 in the latest quarter.

Omaha attorney Bart McLeay raised more than $300,000 for the quarter and has nearly $261,000 cash on hand.

Omaha banker Sid Dinsdale announced his candidacy last month and doesn't have to report his fundraising until January.

No Democrat has entered the race.
