Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Deborah Ross narrowly out-raised incumbent Republican Richard Burr during the second quarter, though Burr continues to enjoy a financial advantage.
Ross raised $2.1 million in the quarter, according to her campaign. Burr raised about $1.6 million. It was the second quarter in a row where Ross out-raised Burr.
For the campaign, Ross, a former legislator from Raleigh, has raised about $4 million. Burr has raised $8.8 million in his bid for a third term.
Burr has nearly $7 million heading into the last four months of the campaign. How much Ross has was unavailable. A Burr spokesman said he has slightly more cash on hand than he did at the same points in his successful 2004 and 2010 campaigns.
