(Harrisburg) --Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Tom Smith, is reporting that he spent nearly $7 million during the three-month third quarter, largely on TV ads.

That's an eye popping amount that's almost three times as much as Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey reported spending today during the quarter that ended September 30th.

Casey is fighting to keep his seat as some polls show the race tightening. The election is November 6th.

Smith also reported that he loaned himself another $10 million, bringing the total he's invested in his campaign to more than $16 million.

Casey reported just over $5 million in his campaign account as of October 1st, while Smith reported more than $7 million.

Smith reported raising $1.6 million in the period, slightly more than Casey.
