PORTLAND, Maine — The re-election campaign for U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine is reporting more than $3.2 million in contributions as of Sept. 30.

Maine Today Media also reported that the Republican incumbent’s campaign raised $792,305 and spent $320,716 during the third quarter. Snowe is up for re-election in 2012.

She’s facing challenges within her party from two tea party-affiliated candidates, Scott D’Amboise of Lisbon Falls and Andrew Ian Dodge of Harpswell. D’Amboise hasn’t reported what he raised last quarter, but in the 2nd quarter he raised less than $117,500. Dodge didn’t raise enough to warrant a report during the first half.

On the Democratic side, former Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap and state Rep. Jonathan Hinck of Portland are considering runs. printed on July 24, 2017
