Republican state Sen. Alan Nunnelee outraised Democratic 1st District Rep. Travis Childers in the second quarter of 2010, but still lags the incumbent in cash on hand after a three-way GOP primary, according to figures released Wednesday by the Federal Election Commission.
Nunnelee reported raising $312,000 in the second quarter of this year compared to $277,000 for Childers, who is seeking his first full term in Congress.
Childers, however, holds a strong lead over Nunnelee in cash on hand: $903,000 compared to about $233,000 for Nunnelee.
Childers reported raising $1.3 million so far in this election cycle.
Congressional fundraising reports were due to be filed with the FEC at midnight Wednesday.
