Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) raised $880,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013, keeping up a strong fundraising pace for his Senate campaign.
Kingston now has $3.2 million in the bank after posting the strongest fundraising quarter of the campaign. He brought in $800,000 the previous quarter.
He is facing off against a half-dozen other Republicans for the nomination to succeed Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), who is retiring, and is the preferred candidate of some establishment Republicans. Others in the race include fellow Reps. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) and Paul Broun (R-Ga.), former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel (R) and wealthy businessman David Perdue (R).
Democrats have coalesced around former charity executive Michelle Nunn, who has kept up a torrid fundraising pace. Nunn announced earlier this week that she raised $1.6 million in the last three months of 2013.
If a weaker GOP nominee emerges from the field, Democrats think they have an even better shot in the changing state with Nunn. The daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), the former charity executive has gotten cross-party support, including a donation from former Sen. Dick Lugar's (R-Ind.) Political Action Committee.
