LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two Democrats running in competitive Nevada House races say they each raised nearly $600,000 last quarter.

State Sen. Ruben Kihuen announced he raised more than $570,000 in the quarter that ended Sept. 30. He’s running against freshman incumbent Republican Rep. Cresent Hardy in a Democratic-leaning district.

Kihuen’s campaign manager jabbed at the Hardy campaign’s lack of TV commercial reservations during the crucial last weeks of the campaign, and said he must be expecting outside groups to “swoop in and try to drag him to victory.”

Hardy’s campaign says it will release fundraising numbers on the Oct. 15 deadline, and denies the lack of TV reservations is a cause for concern.

Democratic House candidate Jacky Rosen raised over $580,000 last quarter. Her Republican opponent, Danny Tarkanian, hasn’t yet released fundraising numbers.
