JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill is raising money in California for her re-election bid against congressman Todd Akin.

The Democratic senator was in California on Wednesday and Thursday for what her campaign described as a fundraising swing through the state.

An invitation posted online by the Sunlight Foundation indicated that McCaskill was holding a luncheon Thursday in San Francisco. But her campaign declined to discuss the details of the fundraising events.

McCaskill has said she raised $5.8 million from July through September. Akin has not yet released his quarterly fundraising totals. Campaign finance reports are due to be filed with the federal government by next Monday.
