U.S. Senate candidate John Sharp reported just over $656,417 from the last fundraising period, including money he gave himself.

Sharp's campaign says they have $2.8 million on hand. During the last fundraising period, Sharp raised slightly over $500,000 and loaned himself $2 million. His campaign has declined to say how much of the $656,417 is from individuals and how much came directly from Sharp. 

After over $2 million in personal loans, Sharp is second among senate hopefuls in cash on hand, trailing Bill White's $3.4 million. When we have Sharp's actual numbers broken down by contributions and money he gave himself we will post them.  

All in all, it is great news to see Democrats continuing to outpace Republicans in U.S. Senate fundraising.

  1. So…
    It seems as if Kuff's hunch was correct.    Sure, it was great for Sharp to get two big Houston endorsements, but I bet a lot of people are forgetting that with so many other fundraising numbers coming in from so many people — not to mention from Sharp, himself.

    Kuff mentioned that the timing of the announcement would be a way to try and provide a diversion from numbers that “aren't terribly impressive” — but if that is what they were trying to do, I'm not sure how much it worked.  I think it would have been more useful to roll out an announcement with that combined with impressive numbers…
