Republican Giuliani builds campaign account in second quarter

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign is reporting it raised $15 million for the GOP primary during the second quarter this year.

The former New York mayor spent $11 million during the April through June period, leaving him more than $14.5 million in the bank. The campaign filed its financial report with the Federal Election Commission Friday.

Overall, Giuliani raised $17.5 million, but $2.6 million can only be used for the general election. He's expected to lead the Republican field in fundraising for the second quarter.

Giuliani also leads in national polls over his GOP rivals.

One of them, Arizona Senator John McCain said he was responsible for his campaign's troubles. He tells New Hampshire Public Radio, his campaign has been spending money as fast as donations come in.
