Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont.


HELENA — Republican Steve Daines reported bringing in $1.2 million from donors and political committees over the last three months as he seeks a second term as Montana's junior U.S. senator.

Two Democrats competing for the chance to take Daines on in next year's general election each reported raising just a fraction of the incumbent's haul.

Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins reported raising $84,450 between July and September, while political newcomer John Mues reports taking in $82,989 for the quarter and loaning his campaign another $18,400.
