LaRose rakes in more than $1 mil­lion three months after launch­ing Ohio Sen­ate bid

EXCLUSIVE — Repub­li­can can­di­date Frank LaRose has raised more than $1 mil­lion since launch­ing his Ohio Sen­ate bid three months ago, putting the sec­re­tary of state in a strong posi­tion as he faces a crowd­ed pri­ma­ry field in the key bat­tle­ground state.
LaRose report­ed a haul of $1,041,657 dur­ing the third fundrais­ing quar­ter, end­ing with about $868,679 cash on hand as he heads into the final three months of the year, accord­ing to a cam­paign finance report filed with the Fed­er­al Elec­tion Com­mis­sion first shared with the Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er. The quar­ter­ly report places LaRose behind both his pri­ma­ry oppo­nents Bernie Moreno and Matt Dolan, although the fundrais­ing num­bers are on par with his com­pe­ti­tion when only con­sid­er­ing mon­ey that was exter­nal­ly raised.
