Two Republicans running in a crowded special election for Louisiana’s 5th District seat have each raised more than $560,000, according to reports filed recently with the Federal Elections Commission.
State Rep. Jay Morris raised $566,000 — which includes a $295,000 loan to his campaign — and reported $188,000 in cash on hand at the end of the pre-primary period. State Sen. Neil Riser raised $561,000 and reported $210,000 in cash on hand.
Riser and Morris are running to replace GOP Rep. Rodney Alexander, who resigned from Congress to take a post in Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration last month. They are two of 14 candidates running in the wide-open Oct. 19 special primary.
Other candidates who reported pre-primary fundraising hauls include:
Former Rep. Clyde Holloway, a Republican who served in Congress from 1987 to 1993, raised $245,500 in his comeback bid, including a $112,000 loan to his campaign. Holloway reported $145,000 in cash on hand going into the primary.
