WASHINGTON (AP) _ Bill Bradley, his Democratic presidential campaign surging, raised more money than Vice President Al Gore over the last three months, and has more money in the bank heading into the final quarter of the year.

Bradley raised an estimated $6.7 million between July and September, spokeswoman Anita Dunn said today. Gore raised around $6.5 million during the same period, according to senior advisers who spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity.

By spending less than $4.2 million during the last three months, Bradley wound up with more than $10 million in the bank as of today. Gore aides said the vice president would have between $9.5 million and $10 million. Gore spent about $6 million between July and September, almost as much as he raised.
