Minnick Has $1 Million Cash Advantage

Here’s a link to (Betsy Russell's full story) at on the news from the latest campaign finance reports in the 1st District congressional race, in which incumbent Congressman Walt Minnick has a million-dollar cash advantage over his Republican challenger, Raul Labrador. Labrador’s reaction? “I’ve been outspent before, and I’ve beaten people who outspent me and outraised me before, so it doesn’t concern me one bit.”

Question: Labrador is right in pointing out that he was vastly outspent by Vaughn Ward in his primary election. How significant is Minnick's $1M advantage now?
