Democrats winning money race in key congressional races .

PHOENIX -- Democrats are outraising and outspending their Republican challengers in two key races that could determine which party sends more congressmen to Washington D.C. next year.

According to the latest campaign finance reports, Democrats in the 1st and 9th congressional districts are winning the money chase heading into the final weeks of the election.

Democrat Kyrsten Sinema hauled in about $664,000 between Aug. 8 and Sept. 29, while Republican Vernon Parker raised about $372,000 over the same time.

More importantly, perhaps, Sinema outspent Parker by a nearly 2-to-1 margin during that time period. According to federal spending reports, Sinema doled out $530,000 to Parker's $226,000.
