MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky has less than half the cash on hand for his re-election bid as he did when running two years ago, while his legal bills related to a federal investigation of his former top fundraiser have topped $400,000.

Campaign finance reports filed this week with the Federal Election Commission show the northwest Indiana Democrat had $692,710 on hand June 30, compared to the $1.6 million he had at that time in the last election cycle.
