by Your Alaska Link News Team

Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Joe Miller brought in nearly $130,000 during the last fundraising quarter.

Miller spent nearly as much, about $121,000, but still had just over $300,000 on hand. Miller came into the race with money left over from his unsuccessful 2010 U.S Senate run.

Miller also reported a $17,000 debt.

Miller is one of the three highest profile Republicans seeking the party's nomination next month for the seat held by Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election.

Republican Dan Sullivan raised nearly $1.2 million and had $1.7 million available as of June 30. Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell has not provided fundraising details.

The filing deadline was July 15.

Begich reported bringing in more than $1.26 million and having about $2.2 million available.
