Casey Cagle raised $132,937.37 this period for a total raised of $1,416,481.33. He spent $177,410.18 this period for a total of $535,253.86. His cash on hand is $881,227.47.
Ralph Reed raised $269,461.30 this period for a total of $1,663,306.33. He spent $216,803.52 this period, which was his total expenditure for the election cycle. He has cash on hand of $1,446,502.81.
Let’s be honest. No one save the Cagle folks thought the cash on hand and fundraising of these guys would be as close at it is. The conventional wisdom at the start of the race was that Ralph would be smoking Casey. That isn’t the case.
On the Democratic side, Jim Martin raised $157,098.27 this period for a total of $744,705.35. He spent $131,300.51 this period and overall spent $275,407.81. He has total cash on hand of $469,297.54.
Greg Hecht raised $238,174.44 this period with $1,065,032.58 raised total. He spent $124,365.20 this period and has overall spent $275,167.32. He has cash on hand of $789,865.26.
For comparison, Mark Taylor raised $6.63 this period and has raised a total of $1,357,084.36 this election cycle for his Lite Gov race. Most of that money has been redirected, returned, or otherwise spent and he has left in his Lt. Gov war chest $23,198.80. I bet his contribution was bank interest.
