Democratic US Senate candidate Foster Campbell says he’s raised $2.5 million in campaign funds in the last month, but will dollars be enough to secure a victory? Political analyst Bernie Pinsonat says while Campbell has raised a decent amount of money, the Democrat’s biggest hurdle is trying to win a statewide election in a red state.
