Arizona: Kyrsten Sinema Raises Nearly $800,000 in Third Quarter

October 5, 2012

Former state Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D) raised $775,000 in the third quarter in her open-seat race against Republican Vernon Parker for Arizona’s 9th district, according to her campaign.

Of that sum, $653,000 was raised from Aug. 9 to Sept. 30. The campaign is still calculating her cash on hand, but it is likely to be somewhere north of $275,000.

Sinema will need every dollar she has raised. Republican outside groups are either already on the air or are expected to buy Phoenix television time. And Parker indicated in a recent interview with Roll Call that his fundraising had picked up after Arizona’s Aug. 28 primary.

Sinema’s is one of the few publicly released third-quarter totals so far, but it is a significant sum for a House race. Fellow EMILY’s List-backed candidate Elizabeth Esty (D) had a strong quarter as well, raking in about $650,000. Esty is running in an open-seat race in Connecticut’s 5th.

Whether these numbers are outliers or indicators of across-the-board large fundraising hauls will only become clear as more numbers trickle in.

Roll Call rates this race as a Tossup.
