Hoeven's report shows he has raised $3.1 million since he entered the race in January. Potter's report shows almost $109,000 in contributions since he started his campaign.

The reports say Hoeven raised almost $700,000 from July through September. Potter raised about $28,000 during the same period.
Hoeven has spent almost $2.2 million on the campaign, while Potter has spent about $70,000.
