(CNN) – Sen. Arlen Specter continues to stockpile cash ahead of what's likely to be a difficult re-election battle.
Specter's campaign announced Wednesday it raised over $1.8 million over the last three months, and ended the latest reporting period with $8.71 million in the bank.
The announcement means that Specter - who switched parties in April to become a Democrat - outraised Republican challenger Pat Toomey, who collected over $1.5 million during the same period. Specter's Democratic primary opponent, Rep. Joe Sestak, has not yet released his third-quarter fundraising totals.
Specter's campaign noted that President Obama's fundraiser for the incumbent in September netted "about a million dollars" for the Democrat.
If there was ever a poster child for term limits, it is Arlen Specter! He needs to retire in disgrace NOW!
Your a scum bag.
He will not get my vote . He voted against the gun law.

God, I wish he would just retire.
Maybe it is too early to pull the plug on Specter.
Those small unreportable donations sure make their way around to embattled dems these days.
