Conlin reports $1 million ready for Senate bid


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Democrat Roxanne Conlin says she has more than $1 million available in her campaign for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Republican Charles Grassley.

On Thursday, Conlin released filings she'd made to the Federal Election Commission that show she raised nearly $880,000 in the first quarter of this year, giving her a little more than $1 million available.

Filings weren't available from Democrats Tom Fiegen and Bob Krause, who also are seeking the nomination to face Grassley.

Grassley hasn't filed his financial disclosures, but they will likely dwarf Conlin's fundraising. His last disclosure showed that at the end of 2009, he had more than $5 million in campaign savings.
