House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican challenger raised more than $1.1 million over the past three months, more than three times as much as Pelosi did.
John Dennis, the Ron Paul-backed GOP nominee running against the Speaker in her liberal San Francisco-based district, raised roughly five times as much as he collected in the previous quarter, according to new Federal Election Commission filings.
Pelosi raised about $303,000 between the beginning of July and the end of September.
That number belies her considerable fundraising prowess: This cycle, Pelosi’s campaign committee has raised almost $2.3 million. And Pelosi doesn’t have much cause for worry in a seat where she typically wins with over 80 percent of the vote and where President Barack Obama won 85 percent in 2008.
