Berkley nearly doubles Heller in Nevada Senate fundraising

Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.) had her best fundraising quarter to date and nearly doubled the amount her opponent, Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), raised during the same stretch.

Berkley raised an impressive $1.2 million from July through September, while Heller brought in approximately $675,000, according to the Las Vegas Sun. She leads Heller in cash on hand $3.2 million to $2.8 million.

Democrats view Nevada as their second-best opportunity to pick up a Senate seat, behind Massachusetts. The state has trended Democratic over the last decade, partly because of a fast-growing Hispanic population. It will also likely be a presidential battleground.
