By Ken Stanford Staff
UNDATED - With the primaries two weeks away, the four candidates for the new 9th District Congressional seat have turned in their latest report, due Sunday, on campaign money raised and spent.
Republicans Doug Collins and Martha Zoller continue to lead the way in both contributions and expenditures.
Collins reports raising $81,685 (refunding $1,000) for the reporting period ending June 30. Collins, who reports total contributions of $343,690 (refunding $4,600) for the election cycle, says he spent $141,819 during the reporting period, with total expenditures, to date, of $272,379 - leaving him with $81,715 in cash on hand.
Zoller, on the other hand, says she raised $73,861 (refunding $350) during the period ending June 30. To date, she reports taking in $235,975 (refunding $1,350). Expenditures reported by Zoller for the latest reporting period total $72,062; to date - $204,896, leaving her with a balance of $36,007.
Collins' and Zoller's reports are available on line at the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) website. The third Republican in the race, Roger Fitzpatrick, says he mailed his report to the FEC. It was not available on line as of mid-afternoon Tuesday but he confirmed Tuesday that he has raised a total of $11,811; spent $6,200; and has on hand $5,603.
There is a fourth candidate in the race, Democrat Jody Cooley, who is running unopposed in the July 31 primary. Cooley reports raising just over $4,222 during the the reporting period and spending about $841, leaving him with cash on hand of around $3,381.
