Mourdock raises $1.6M, nearly doubling Donnelly in Indiana

While Donnelly trailed Mourdock this fundraising quarter, his mark was more than double what he'd achieved in previous quarters, when he'd struggled with fundraising and failed to crack $400,000 in the last three quarters. That boost was likely aided by Mourdock's win: few thought Donnelly could beat Lugar, but Democrats are hopeful for his chances against Mourdock.

The state leans Republican but Donnelly has a relatively centrist voting record, while Mourdock is an unapologetic conservative. The Hill rates this race a "toss-up."
