AUSTIN (October 15, 2012)--Republican Ted Cruz raised $3.5 million between July and September, about 10 times the amount that his Democratic opponent for U.S. Senate brought in.
Cruz is a tea party favorite and former solicitor general who’s vying with ex-Democratic state Rep. Paul Sadler to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.
Cruz said Monday he has $2 million cash-on-hand after raising $3.5 million in the third fundraising quarter between July 1 and Sept. 30.
Sadler said he raised nearly $359,000 over the same period and had about $134,000 cash-on-hand as of Sept. 30.
Cruz is heavily favored in the Nov. 6 general election after he upset Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst to win the GOP senatorial primary.
Cruz said $2 million in third-quarter donations alone came after his July 31 primary victory.
