Wednesday, July 15, 2009 | 10:48 a.m. CDT

JEFFERSON CITY — It was a million-dollar spring for Roy Blunt and Robin Carnahan.

The leading Republican and Democratic candidates for Missouri's U.S. Senate seat both reported raising more than $1 million during the three-month period ending June 30.

More details on their fundraising and expenditures were expected Wednesday as candidates face a deadline to file quarterly finance reports.

Blunt is a Republican who currently represents southwest Missouri in the U.S. House. Carnahan is a Democrat who is secretary of state.

They are the only declared candidates seeking to replace retiring Republican Sen. Kit Bond in the 2010 elections.
