Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), having survived an expensive primary fight in June, is rebuilding her campaign war chest for her general election battle with Rep. John Boozman (R). According to reports filed by her campaign yesterday, Lincoln had $1.9 million cash on hand as of June 30, and raised $2.7 million during the second quarter, which began April 1 and included the hotly-contested May 18 Democratic primary and June 8 runoff with Lt. Gov. Bill Halter.
Boozman, who won his party’s nomination in the May 18 primary, has not yet released his fundraising numbers according to a report in the Arkansas News.
The TPM Poll Average shows Boozman leading Lincoln 63.3-29.9.
