Mo. Reps. Clay, Carnahan close in fundraising
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Congressmen William Lacy Clay Jr. and Russ Carnahan are neck-and-neck in fundraising for their Democratic primary in St. Louis.
Federal campaign finance reports show Clay raised nearly $198,000 during the past quarter while Carnahan raised nearly $187,000.
Both are running in the 1st Congressional District after Missouri lost one of its nine U.S. House seats for this year's election. The districts were squeezed together because the 2010 census showed that the state's population growth failed to keep pace with the nation's.
Carnahan spent more money than Clay during the past quarter. But Clay entered July with more cash in his campaign account -- about $420,000 compared to Carnahan's $366,000.
