Republicans have opened up a big money advantage in the heated race for control of New York state's Senate.

State campaign finance records show the Republican majority has $4.49 million going into the fall elections that will decide the majority. The GOP raised $1.2 million in the last six months and spent $793,000 so far.
 
The Democrats say they raised over $3.3 million since January, with more than $730,000 collected in the last three months.
 
Democrats say they have whittled their debt to $1.45 million from $3 million in January. Democrats say they have $750,000 on hand now.
 
The Independent Democratic Conference had reported more than $213,000 on hand in January and is raising money to expand.
 
Republicans have a 33-29 majority, but the four independents often ally with Republicans.
