BREAKING: McCain Raises $1M+ In 3Q15, Less Than Either Of 1st 2 Quarters; Warchest Of $4.9M (Politico Reports)

Politico is reporting this morning that Arizona Senator John McCain (R-AZ) boosted his campaign warchest in the 3rd quarter to $4.9M - up from $4.5M.  They also note that his $1M+ raised is LESS than he raised in either of the 1st two quarters of 2015.

(Arizona's Politics reported last quarter about his slide from 1Q15 to 2Q15, and that $1.1M of the cash on hand is from his 2008 Presidential campaign.)

McCain faces both a primary challenge from his right, and a general election battle from his left.  Presently, State Sen. Kelli Ward is the primary GOP challenger and Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) the likely general election opponent.


When the report is officially filed (deadline is the 15th), Arizona's Politics will report on it further.
