Sen. Heller and Rep. Berkley finish 2011 with nearly equal amounts of cash on hand

Hotline On Call reports:

Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., raised $1.1 million during the fourth quarter, finishing 2011 with $3.75 million in the bank. The money race at the end of the year in Nevada was pretty even: GOP Sen. Dean Heller finished with $3.65 million in the bank.

Only $100,000 separates the leading contenders of one of 2012's closest Senate races — a race which could determine control of the chamber.

Expect to hear a lot more about this one as the year goes on.
