Rodney Davis, the Republican nominee for the 13th U.S. House District seat, outpaced Democratic nominee Dr. David Gill in fundraising receipts -- $440,844 versus $232,349 -- between April 1 and June 30.
Davis, who was named the GOP nominee in late May after incumbent Tim Johnson announced he was retiring, commands a slight overall lead on Gill in total fundraising, $440,844 versus $423,626.
Davis spent far less than the Democrat and put a lot more money in the bank, according to the latest Federal Election Commission data.
Davis, of Taylorville, reported spending $11,660, leaving him with $429,184.
In contrast, Gill, of Bloomington, spent $51,314, with $197,001 on hand, and debts of $17,500, the FEC figures show.
In the neighboring 15th House District, incumbent John Shimkus, R-Collinsville, reported raising $250,870 for the three-month reporting period, and spending $160,020, according to the report, leaving him with a war chest of $1.4 million accrued from previous campaign cycles, the FEC report shows.
Meanwhile, Shimkus' Democratic challenger, Angela Michael of Highland, has raised less than $8,000, with $437 on hand, according to Daniel Michael, her husband and campaign manager, who said he filed Michael's FEC report late last week.
In the 12th U.S. House District, newly appointed Democratic nominee Bill Enyart, of Belleville, reported raising $177,990 and spending $1,256, with $176,734 on hand.
Republican Jason Plummer, of Fairview Heights, reported raising $236,737 during the most recent three-month reporting period, for a total since last year of $541,358.
Plummer reported spending nearly $130,798, with $216,420 in the bank, and debts of $146,706 for the April 1 to June 30 period.
