Vermont's Sanders Reports Raising $6.8 Million


Vermont U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has raised nearly $ 7 million in his bid for a second six-year term.

That's expected to dwarf the fundraising efforts of Republican challenger John MacGovern, who had raised less than $30,000 as of early August. Updated numbers for him were not immediately available.

Monday was a deadline for campaign finance reports for both federal and state elections in Vermont.

Among statewide candidates, Democratic state Treasurer Beth Pearce reported raising more than $53,000 during the past month, and a total of more than $186,000 so far in the campaign.
