Jack Kingston Raised $880K in 4th Quarter | At the Races

Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston will file yet another strong fundraising period when fourth-quarter reports are due at the end of the month.

Kingston, one of the three Republican congressmen running for the state’s open Senate seat, pulled in $880,000 from September through December, according to figures first obtained by CQ Roll Call. He ended the year with $3.4 million on hand after raising a total of $4.2 million for the cycle.

It’s the best quarter of the cycle for Kingston, who brought in just more than $800,000 in the third quarter. None of the other Republicans in the deep primary field have released their fourth-quarter fundraising numbers.

In the third quarter, Kingston, an 11-term congressman from Savannah, easily outpaced his House colleagues, Reps. Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey, as well as former Secretary of State Karen Handel and businessman Eugene Yu. However, deep-pocketed and well-connected businessman David Perdue raised more than $800,000 and invested $1 million of his own money.

All are vying for the seat of retiring GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss in a state that leans Republican.
