Reid reports cash haul of more than $3.25 million

"Our campaign is strong and getting stronger by the day," Reid, who's up for re-election next year, said in a statement Tuesday. "The financial support we have already received will enable us to run a campaign that communicates with Nevadans in every corner of the state."

The campaign says Reid has brought in nearly half of the $25 million he's planning to raise before next year's election.

President Barack Obama helped Reid rake in an estimated $1-2 million at a fundraising event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in late May.

The most recent polling in Nevada suggests that only a minority of voters there think Reid deserves to be re-elected - but the GOP has yet to come up with a competitive candidate to challenge the incumbent.

    just wondering if this "cash on hand" would put mr. reid in the "wealthy" category (as he seems to act as though this is his personal money) and require him to kick in some bucks to pay for our national health care?

    The republicans shouldn't have a hard time finding someone, anyone, to beat Mr. Reid...how about a cockroach?
