Senator Carl Levin collected nearly $1.5 million dollars during the first quarter of 2007 for his re-election campaign to a sixth term in the U.S. Senate.
Campaign finance records released on Friday show the Democrat's campaign has about $1.6 million on hand. The campaign spent about $250,000 dollars during the period.
It was Levin's largest-ever quarterly fund-raising yield. Levin has typically waited until the two years before an election before ramping up fundraising efforts.
First elected in 1978, the Detroiter is considered a strong favorite next year. No potential Republican challenger has yet emerged.
