Tillis has raised triple his opponents

Posted by Jim Morrill on January 31, 2014 

House Speaker Thom Tillis has raised three times as much as any of his GOP opponents, according to their campaigns.

Tillis’s campaign already had announced raising $1.7 million last year. On Friday, Cary physician Greg Brannon announced he’d raised $524,000. Charlotte pastor Mark Harris raised $406,000.

But Harris reported more money in the bank at the end of the year. He had $255,800 on hand. Brannon had $143,300.

Those figures are based on summaries of candidate fund-raising released by the campaigns. Reports were due Friday.
