Thompson reports having $1.3 million on hand

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republican Tommy Thompson's campaign says it has $1.3 million cash on hand for the final days of the Senate race against Democrat Tammy Baldwin.

Thompson reported his latest spending totals Thursday. Baldwin had not reported hers by late afternoon.

The latest reporting period covers Oct. 1 through Oct. 17.

Thompson's spokesman Lisa Boothe says he raised $1.6 million during that period and brought in $6.4 million total for the campaign. She did not immediately say how much he had spent during that time.

Boothe says Thompson is in a strong financial position heading into the final stretch.

Thompson and Baldwin are scheduled to meet Friday for the third and final debate before the election.
