LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Republican Congressman Rick Crawford's campaign says he's raised more than $253,000 over the past three months for his re-election bid.
The Arkansas lawmaker's campaign said Thursday that he has more than $618,000 cash on hand for his re-election bid. Crawford is seeking a second term representing east Arkansas' 1st District. The campaign said he raised a little more than $253,000 between April 1 and June 30.
Crawford's campaign said the amount surpasses the $159,000 he had raised during the same quarter during his 2010 bid.
Crawford faces Democratic nominee Scott Ellington, a local prosecutor, in the November election.
