PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island’s two Democratic U.S. senators are trying to maintain their campaign accounts, even though neither is facing re-election this year.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse ended June with just under $1 million in his campaign account. That’s according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. Whitehouse won’t face re-election until 2018.

Fellow Democratic Sen. Jack Reed has also maintained a healthy campaign account. Reed ended June with more than $1.7 million in his campaign account, even as he’s spending more than he’s taking in. Reed won’t face re-election until 2020.

Both senators raised the bulk of their contributions from individual donations.

Both also accepted contributions from political action committees, also known as PACs.
