Senate Democrats, facing election challenges to their majority, continued to stockpile campaign money during the second fundraising quarter of the year, new figures show.
At least two incumbent Democrats who could see tough re-election contests in 2014 – Minnesota Sen. Al Franken and Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina — collected about $2 million each from April 1 through June 30.
Three Democrats seeking re-election in GOP strongholds raised roughly $1 million or more. Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana led the way, collecting $1.7 million compared with $1.1 million raised by her best-known Republican rival, Rep. Bill Cassidy of Baton Rouge.
Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Mark Begich of Alaska announced raising $1.2 million and nearly $1 million, respectively.
Sarah Palin’s divisive rhetoric, inflammatory comments, and extreme policies have had a negative impact on our country. Now, the half-term governor and Tea Party idol is considering a run for the Senate.
Sarah Palin “quit on Alaska” as governor and “ has lost touch” with her home state, Sen. Mark Begich told POLITICO.
The Democratic senator said Palin, who said Tuesday she’s considering challenging him for his seat in 2014, might not even be a resident of Alaska and is someone he won’t take seriously unless she emerges from a competitive Republican primary.
Every vote counts: Alaska State Senator Hollis French retained his seat by 56 votes.

The National Call Team is a group of volunteers who will make the most critical calls to the most critical voters we need to win.
We’ll make those calls using the call tool—so you can make them from home or anywhere you like, on your own time and on your own phone. The call tool will help you know who you’re calling and give you a sense of what you could say to the person on the other end of the line.
To help you be the best you can be, we’ll have special conference calls where you can learn more about the areas you’re calling and keep you informed on the latest developments. You’ll also get special updates from campaign leaders and chances to exchange tips and tricks with other team members.
It’s going to be a challenging mission, but it’s one I hope you’ll be up for.
