JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Mead Treadwell’s U.S. Senate campaign reported raising more than $228,000 during the last quarter.

Treadwell is among the candidates seeking the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mark Begich. Begich is seeking re-election.

Another Republican hopeful, Dan Sullivan, announced earlier this month that he had raised about $1.3 million between October and December but did not provide further details at that time.

The filing deadline with the Federal Election Commission is Jan. 31.


Treadwell campaign spokesman Fred Brown says the campaign is “thrilled” with the amount of support it’s received. Brown, in a statement, said more than 80 percent of the campaign’s donations during the last quarter came from Alaskans.

Treadwell is Alaska’s lieutenant governor.
