Less than two weeks before the primaries, congressional candidate Glenn McCullough, hoping to represent a district that includes DeSoto County, has raised more money than any of his opponents, including Southaven Mayor Greg Davis.
McCullough, former Tupelo mayor, raised $334,061, about $66,800 more than Davis, who is in his third term as mayor of DeSoto County’s largest city.
Davis came in second in fundraising with $267,255 from a list of four candidates whose reports for contributions through Feb. 20 were posted by the Federal Election Commission by late Friday.
The candidates are in a race for the First Congressional District seat. The seat was vacated by Roger Wicker, appointed by the governor to fill Sen. Trent Lott’s seat.
The primaries are March 11.
