The September fundraising reports for AZ CD-8 race are posted on the FEC web site. At first glance looks like Gabby is way ahead with $632,625 for the period. Graf raised $289,841 during the same period.
Looking at the cash on hand gives a different picture. Gabby has $376,645 and Graf $254,684. Looking further we see that Giffords has debts of $20,622 vs. zero debts for Graf.
Sure Gabby has raised more money but she is burning through it fast and the cash on hand is not that far apart.
p.s. The NRCC has stopped running ads in the CD-8 race but their ad lives on at youtube.com
