Hurst, McRae report large campaign cash hauls

Republican challengers Mike Hurst for attorney general and David McRae for state treasurer are reporting large campaign cash hauls in their first finance reports.

Most startling, McRae, who’s challenging incumbent Republican Treasurer Lynn Fitch, says he’s raised $251,729, although his official report for the first quarter was not yet posted on the Secretary of State’s website Friday afternoon. Fitch, whose report was already posted, showed only $88,359 raised, with $110,765 cash on hand.
