Big Budgets in This Year's Senate Race


The 2014 U.S. Senaterace in Nebraska looks like it's shaping up to be an expensive one.

Midland University PresidentBen Sass, who is making his first run for public office, raised a whopping $815,000in the third quarter. That's more than any other candidate in the race.

It's also almosttwice as much as the $427,000 reported Tuesday by former Nebraska State TreasurerShane Osborn.

Omaha attorney Bart McLeayraised more than $300,000 and Omaha banker Sid Dinsdale, who just announced hiscandidacy last month, doesn't have to report his fundraising until January.

So far no democrat has entered the senaterace.
