MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Doug Jones is outspending Republican challenger Tommy Tuberville in the home stretch of Alabama’s Senate race.  

Campaign finance reports filed Thursday show the  incumbent Democrat raised $10 million between July 1 and the end of September. Jones spent $11 million and had $8 million on hand for the closing weeks of the campaign.

Tuberville reported raising $3.3 million and spending $2.1 million. He finished the quarter with $1.7 million on hand for the final days of the campaign.  

Several outside groups are pumping money into Alabama television ads to try to sway the race.
