Senate candidates Jeff Merkley and Steve Novick have released their fundraising totals for the final quarter of 2007.
And we've once again produced a box-score - following up on what we did last quarter. And since a picture is worth a thousand words, we've got a lovely bar chart for you as well.
Merkley's daily pace of fundraising jumped by over $2000 - from $4819/day in Q3 to $6878/day in Q4. He nearly tripled Novick's Q4 fundraising, on the strength of 1200 more donors. The Merkey campaign says that his total broke Oregon's two-quarter fundraising record for U.S. Senate challengers.
Novick's daily rate went up by almost $1000, from $1389/day in Q3 to $2433/day in Q4 - and saw his average donation go up from $248 to $274.

Writing for the Register-Guard's blog, David Steves wonders aloud: "Is Merkley pulling away in the Dems’ money race?". At the Oregonian, Jeff Mapes also blogs about the numbers.
