Democrat Nunn to report $2.4 million haul in Ga. Senate race; GOP's Perdue to post $573,500


ATLANTA — A spokesman for Democrat Michelle Nunn says she'll report about $2.4 million in contributions for the first three months of the year, 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 as Republicans seek a Senate majority.

Also Monday, a spokesman for Republican David Perdue says the ex-Dollar General CEO will report about $573,500 in contributions in three months with $700,000 in the bank. Nunn hasn't released her cash on hand.

While the Democratic establishment has rallied around Nunn, the GOP race remains open. Rep. Jack Kingston has been leading in fundraising, reporting about $1.1 million in contributions this quarter with about $2.1 million in cash.
