JUNEAU- U.S. Sen. Mark Begich reported bringing in nearly $850,000 toward his re-election effort during the final quarter of 2013.

Begich's campaign, in a filing with the Federal Election Commission, reported ending the year with $2.8 million on hand.
The contributions from October through December include nearly $530,000 from individuals and nearly $280,000 from political committees.
Begich is a first-term Democrat in a race that is expected to be hotly contested. Republicans have said they see the Alaska seat as key to efforts to try to reclaim control of the Senate.
Two of Begich's Republican rivals had released fundraising totals for the quarter but had not yet released their reports. Mead Treadwell's campaign reported raising more than $228,000, while Dan Sullivan's reported bringing in more than $1.2 million.
