The Bruce Braley and Joni Ernst campaigns in the Iowa Senate race released second-quarter fundraising totals Tuesday. 

The campaign for Democratic candidate Bruce Braley says it has raised nearly $1.7 million between April 1st and June 30, ending with more than $2.7 million cash on hand.  The campaign says Braley has raised more than $7 million for his Senate campaign since he announced his candidacy.

Braley's Republican opponent raised $1.78 million for the second quarter of 2014.  The Joni Ernst campaign says it raised $1.04 million since she won the Republican primary on June 3.  The Ernst campaign currently has more than $1 million cash on hand. 

The figures come on the same day an NBC/Marist poll shows the two candidates deadlocked among surveyed registered voters at 43 percent.
