Steve Bullock raises $26.8 million in third quarter for Montana Senate bid

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock (D) raised $26.8 million in the third quarter of the year for his bid to unseat Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), making him the latest Democratic Senate candidate to set a fundraising record in his state.

Bullock’s third quarter fundraising haul is more than three times the roughly $7.8 million he raised in the second quarter, and it represents a new high raised by a candidate in a statewide race in Montana in a single three-month period.

His campaign said that 96 percent of donations over the course of the quarter were less than $200, with an average contribution size of $38.74.
