We’re starting to get a picture of what the early stages of fundraising and cash on hand will look like for the announced candidates in Georgia’s GOP Senate race.
Peach Pundit has learned that Karen Handel starts the race with $154,015.08 raised for the few weeks she has been an official candidate. With little paid in expenses she has $150,058.28 cash on hand as of 6/30/13. Though starting well into the quarter, Handel’s numbers are expected to compare favorably with that of Congressman Paul Broun, who was the first to enter the race but is not attracting the same kind of fundraising action that his two Congressional peers seem to be enjoying.
Earlier, Congressman Jack Kingston let it be known that his report will show $800,000 raised in Q2 and will show north of $2MM cash on hand.
