LAS VEGAS (AP) - New fundraising numbers show Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is continuing to outraise Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller in their Senate race but she’s also drastically outspending him.

Federal Election Commission reports show Rosen raised $1.4 million from April 1 through May 23 but spent about $2.3 million.

Heller raised $1 million in that same time but spent about half a million dollars. He ended May with $4.9 million in his campaign account.



Heller and Rosen are expected to face each other in a close election this November.

He’s considered one of the most vulnerable Republican senators running for re-election this year.

Rosen is a relative newcomer to politics and has been spending heavily on television ads to boost her name recognition.

She ended May with $2.6 million leftover in her campaign account.

This story has been corrected to show Rosen raised $1.4 million, not $1.2 million and Heller raised $1 million, not $962,000.
