Ausley pulls down $203k



More fundraising numbers! In a down-ballot race that doesn't get much ink this time of year, Democrat Loranne Ausley pulled down a strong $203,000 last quarter, compared with Jeff Atwater's $246,000.

Ausley is still pretty far behind Atwater in the money totals: She has $507,000 on hand compared with Atwater's $2.1 million. We'll see after the next few fundraising reports if Ausley can close the gap.

UPDATE: Our original post had Ausley raising $317,000. Using the Department of State's fundraising site, we erroneously included that number for her cash contributions, but that figure also includes in-kind donations. The post has been updated to reflect this.
