ATLANTA (AP) - A spokesman for Democrat Michelle Nunn says she'll report about $2.4 million in contributions, her strongest fundraising quarter to date in her bid for Georgia's open U.S. Senate seat.
Seven Republicans and four Democrats are competing in the May 20 primary. The race is being closely watched this year as Republicans seek a majority in the Senate.
A Nunn spokesman says 20,000 donors have contributed to the campaign in eight months. Rep. Jack Kingston has been leading the GOP field in fundraising. He is expected to report about $1.1 million in contributions, with about $2.1 million in the bank.
Nunn's cash on hand wasn't immediately available. Other Republicans in the race are Reps. Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey, former Secretary of State Karen Handel and ex-Dollar General CEO David Perdue.
