U.S. Senate candidate Thom Tillis is apparently trailing Sen. Kay Hagan in fundraising.
Tillis’ campaign sent out word on Friday that he had raised more than $700,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, pushing his total fundraising since May to more than $1.7 million.
Sounds like a lot, and it is.
But Hagan earlier this week reported raising more than $2 million in the fourth quarter. She says she has $6.8 million on hand.
Never miss a local story.
Tillis wants to compare numbers at this point in Hagan’s campaign six years ago, but Hagan got into the race in 2007 late in the year, while Tillis has seven months under his belt.
Candidates will file their campaign finance reports later this month.
