JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Libertarian U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller reported raising nearly $200,000 for his campaign during the latest fundraising period while independent Margaret Stock brought in about $150,000.

While the reporting period spans from July through September, Miller’s campaign said his haul dates to early last month, when he entered the race as a last-minute replacement on the Libertarian ticket.

Miller spokesman Randy DeSoto said the Federal Election Commission filing will be amended to account for at least $7,000 in in-kind contributions. He said examples of such contributions include airline miles and tickets.

A summary of Miller’s filing showed the candidate also chipped in about $4,000.

Stock, meanwhile, reported raising about $150,000 between July 28 and Sept. 30. That includes about $27,000 listed as coming from Stock, according to a summary of her filing. As of Sept. 30, she had close to $110,000 available.

The totals reported by Miller and Stock lag behind incumbent Republican Lisa Murkowski, who reported raising about $415,000 between July 28 and Sept. 30, and ending the period with about $1.6 million.

Democrat Ray Metcalfe hadn’t released his latest fundraising numbers yet.
