Roll Call says they have the numbers first. Now you have them:
Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston will file yet another strong fundraising period when fourth-quarter reports are due at the end of the month.
Kingston, one of the three Republican congressmen running for the state’s open Senate seat, pulled in $880,000 from September through December, according to figures first obtained by CQ Roll Call. He ended the year with $3.4 million on hand after raising a total of $4.2 million for the cycle.
It’s the best quarter of the cycle for Kingston, who brought in just more than $800,000 in the third quarter. None of the other Republicans in the deep primary field have released their fourth-quarter fundraising numbers.
I think every other candidate is willing to unofficially concede the money race to Kingston. But two of the others have much higher name ID, one has the direct backing of God, and the other seems to have a checkbook as big as God’s. We’ll report on the efforts of the others as we receive them.
