Bee’s Q2 Fundraising Results: $392K

State Sen. Tim Bee, who is challenging Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, reports raising $391,821 in the second quarter.

Bee’s campaign reports that he had raised $1,144,508 for the campaign and had more than $687,000 on hand as of June 30, which was the end of the reporting period.

Bee campaign spokesman Tom Dunn notes that Bee has now raised more than former District 8 Congressman Jim Kolbe was ever able to raise at this point in a campaign, although the GOP candidate still lags behind Giffords, who had more than $2 million in the bank at the end of June.

Bee is expected to raise at least a half-million dollars later this week when President George W. Bush comes to Tucson for a breakfast fundraiser.
