Decision 2018: New reports show Rosen outraised Heller in recent months

New campaign fundraising reports show Democrat Jacky Rosen raised more than twice as much campaign cash as Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller in recent months.

A partial copy of Heller's fundraising report, provided to The Associated Press on Monday shows Heller raised about $1.1 million from January 1 through March 31.

Rosen, a congresswoman from Nevada's 3rd District who is challenging Heller this year, reported late last week having raised almost $2.6 million during the same time frame.

Though the freshman Democrat outpaced Heller's fundraising, she's still catching up to the more than $4.4 million built up in his campaign account. Fundraising numbers show Rosen ended March with $3.5 million in her campaign coffers.

Heller is considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans seeking re-election this year, running in a state won by Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
