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.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee announced today that an analysis of state legislative elections resulted in Democrats netting a total gain of 170 seats in legislative chambers across the country.
“From Maine to Hawaii, Democratic candidates simply did a better job talking to voters and addressing issues that are important to working families,” said Michael Sargeant, executive director of the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. “The voters have spoken, and they have decided that they prefer Democrats’ approach of solving problems versus the Republican approach of attacking middle class families.”
Just weeks before the election, national Republicans expressed confidence in winning multiple chambers and even expressed certainty that some heavily-contested chambers would remain under Republican control. Instead, Democrats won new majorities in the Colorado House, Maine House, Maine Senate, Minnesota House, Minnesota Senate, New Hampshire House, New York Senate and Oregon House; gained super-majorities in the California Assembly, California Senate, Illinois House and Illinois Senate; and gained seats in 40 chambers that were up for election on Tuesday.
