JACKSON, Mississippi — Most of Mississippi's statewide incumbents continue to raise more campaign cash than their challengers leading into the party primaries.
The exception is still in the Republican primary for state treasurer. Challenger David McRae shows more campaign cash than incumbent Lynn Fitch. But, as in the previous round of reporting, most of McRae's money is coming from himself and his wife.
The three candidates with the most campaign cash on hand are Republican incumbents — Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves with $3 million, Gov. Phil Bryant with $2.8 million and Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann with $1.1 million.
Democratic and Republican primaries are Aug. 4, and the general election is Nov. 3.
Up for election this year are eight statewide offices, several regional offices and all 174 legislative seats.
