Two of the biggest recipients of out-of-state campaign money are running against each other.

Republican Sharron Angle, hoping to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada, has raised almost three-fourths of her contributions from out of state. Mr. Reid took just more than three-fourths of his campaign war chest from outside of Nevada, records show. Neither campaign returned messages Thursday.

The Reid-Angle race is considered a tossup even though Mr. Reid has raised nearly $20 million compared with about $3.5 million for Ms. Angle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Ms. Angle was scheduled to raise more money this week in Washington at a fundraising event hosted by, among others, a lobbyist for the National Association of Wholesaler Distributors, according to party invitations obtained by the Sunlight Foundation.

Mr. Gowdy is the solicitor, or district attorney, for South Carolina’s 7th Judicial Circuit. After winning the June 22 runoff election against Mr. Inglis, 71 percent to 29 percent, he will face Democrat Paul Corden, Constitution Party candidate Dave Edwards and Libertarian Rick Mahler in the general election.
