ATLANTA (AP) -- Candidates for Georgia's open Senate seat have filed their required campaign finance reports for April, and Rep. Jack Kingston continues to lead the GOP field in total contributions.
A Kingston spokesman said Friday the campaign raised $291,000 in contributions last month and had nearly $1.3 million heading into the final stretch before the May 20 primary.
Former Dollar General CEO David Perdue raised about $219,000 with about $467,000 in cash. The April report also shows Perdue put another $1 million into his campaign.
Rep. Paul Broun of Athens raised $142,000 but only had about $180,000 in cash.
Former Secretary of State Karen Handel raised $135,000 with about $337,000 in cash.
Rep. Phil Gingrey received just under $74,000 in contributions but still had about $1.2 million in cash.
