TUPELO – Incumbent U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee, R-Miss., has raised $22 for every $1 earned by his Democratic challenger, Brad Morris, since the start of the campaign.
It’s the largest fundraising disparity between 1st District congressional candidates since 2006, when then-six-term incumbent Roger Wicker outraised and outspent Democrat Ken Hurt by a margin of 72 to 1.
Morris has raised $73,692 so far, including $29,817 during the past three months. That’s double what he raised in the second quarter. But he loaned himself an even larger sum: $41,345 since July and $98,104 total since the start of the campaign.
