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.
