Carter to report $1.8M in cash for governor's race

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Democrat Jason Carter is expected to report having $1.8 million in cash for his gubernatorial bid after raising about $2 million in contributions over the last three months.

Carter spokesman Bryan Thomas said Monday the campaign added 6,000 new contributors and noted the campaign had spent $1.3 million on TV ads in the last quarter.

Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, who is seeking re-election, has yet to release his fundraising totals. Candidates have until Wednesday to file their reports with the state ethics commission.

Deal had reported $3.9 million in cash at the end of March. He has also been airing TV ads for months.

Carter is a state senator from Atlanta. The two will meet in the general election on Nov. 4. Also on the ballot is Libertarian Andrew Hunt.
