This is the second quarter in a row that Begich has raised nearly $1 million. He now has more than $2 million in the bank, money that will go far in inexpensive Alaska.
It remains uncertain who Begich's opponent will be. Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell (R) is the front-runner at this point against 2010 Senate nominee Joe Miller (R). Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has been making noises about a run, but few expect her to take the plunge.
