Republican Jackie Walorski led the way in fundraising in the 2nd District U.S. House race in the third quarter, mustering $412,214.86 in contributions.

Democrat Brendan Mullen trailed in the July 1 through Sept. 30 period, reporting $262,896.02 in contributions.

Here are more numbers, courtesy of the candidates’ finance reports, due Monday, filed with the Federal Election Commission:

Ÿ Total receipts: Walorski reported a total haul for the election cycle of $1,545,316.92, $1,539,007.23 of that in the form of contributions. Mullen reported $1,077,072.87 in all, $1,066,089.87 of that contributions.

Ÿ Disbursements: The bulk of spending has thus far come in the third quarter. Walorski reported $737,650.83 in third-quarter disbursements and overall spending during the election of $1,302,447.90. Mullen spent $612,009.52 in the third quarter and had spent $851,292.93 overall.

Ÿ Leftover funds: As of Sept. 30, Walorski had $397,434.08 in funds remaining while Mullen had $225,766.55.

Ÿ The Libertarian’s haul: The FEC website did not show a third-quarter fundraising report for Libertarian candidate Joe Ruiz. The website did, however, have a summary of second-quarter fundraising, between April 1 and June 30. The figures showed Ruiz had received $3,576 in the period and spent $3,161.

In a press release Monday, Mullen said he was “excited and inspired to have the support of so many dedicated friends and families who want to see our Hoosier values of hard work, fairness and a strong middle class represented in Washington.” His campaign, he continued, is designed to “take on special interests and overcome partisan finger-pointing” to aid in job creation and other efforts.

Walorski said in a press release last week on her preliminary fundraising totals that with her haul, 2nd District residents “made it clear” they want an “independent voice” in Congress. Eighty-seven percent of her donations have come from within Indiana.

Monsoon season in the Southwest, which officially ended Sept. 30, will go down as a record-breaker. Meteorologists say some areas in Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico received more rain in one day than in a normal summer. The intense amount of moisture also brought flood damage that is still being felt in homes and roads throughout the region.  (AP Photo/Matt York, File)
