DeLay raises more than $1.1 million in last 3 months

KRT Wire | 10/14/2005 | DeLay raises more than $1.1 million in last 3 months: "Rep. Tom DeLay has been getting some serious help from his friends, raising more than $1.1 million in the last three months for campaign and legal expenses - and smashing his own formidable personal bests for both accounts.

The former majority leader, a Texas Republican, raised more than $800,000 in the last three months for his campaign, aides said Friday, putting the total close to $2 million as he girds for a fight with former Rep. Nick Lampson, a Democrat. He also raised more than $300,000 for his defense fund, just as his legal bills started to mount with his indictment two weeks ago.

The high tallies reflect two central facets of DeLay's current situation. He's in the fights of his life - political and legal - and he's still got plenty of allies and favors to call in.

On Friday, for instance, he was in Midland, Texas, raising campaign cash with help from a freshman congressman, Rep. Mike Conaway."
