Note: We will use this post for all First Quarter fundraising information for MS-01 candidates as it comes in (although I imagine you will see more detailed posts in the coming week).

The Travis Childers campaign sent out a press release today stating that the First District Representative raised a little over $220,000 in the January 1-March 31 cycle. At the same time, Childers was able to net about $150,000 cash on hand and increase his total from $550,000 to $700,000.  His official numbers are now available at the FEC site.

We are still waiting for official numbers from Alan Nunnelee, Angela McGlowan, and Henry Ross. Nunnelee had $292,000 COH at the end of 2009.

Needless to say, Childers will all but certainly have a fundraising edge over whomever emerges from the GOP primary.

Update: Henry Ross’ first fundraising report is now available at the FEC website. Ross is showing that he raised just shy of $61,000 this quarter, and he also loaned his campaign $50,000. He closes the quarter with a little less than $97,000 cash on hand.

Since Jeppie Barbour’s name was mentioned on the blog, Ross does in deed have a disbursement to Barbour on the filing.

Update: Alan Nunnelee’s quarterly fundraising report is now in and available at the FEC website.  Nunnelee raised $150,427.12 this quarter and is now reporting just under $295,000 cash on hand at the end of the quarter.

Update: Angela McGlowan’s first quarter numbers are now out and available at the FEC website.  McGlowan posted just under $36,000 in contributions and currently has right under $16,000 cash on hand.  McGlowan actually contributed $10,000 to her campaign.

    Does anyone know how to find out how much of this money came from outside the state of Mississippi? I would love to know how much Barney Franks and Pelosi and there lawyer cronies from outside the state are donating.

      That would be on their FEC reports; Childers reports have not been posted online yet.

    Ross borrowed $50,000 and then gave himself another $26,000. In reality he has only raised about $35,000.

    Very few people feel confident in Ross enough to invest in him. McGlowan’s report should be good. I predict she is funding her campaign.

    McGlowan only raised $35,000 with $12,000 of it coming from her. Looks like Henry and Angela are going to fight for a distant second. Nunnelee is looking strong!

    What sort of show is Nunnelee running to have spent so much money? Where could it go? This is an extremely quiet primary and he has spent over $300,000. He will be at zero on election day and he is supposed to be a shoe in. Ponder this, our appropriates chair can hardly manage campaign expenditures. What was the DC money and Jackson money on Nunnelee?

      I guess I am a bit confused but where did you come up with the part about Nunnelee spending 300 grand already? I read it that he has 300 grand at his disposal.

      Hey FL you are not confused about Nunnelees’ expendatures TC is. Also, TC I find it interesting that you are so quick to be critical of Nunnelees campaign expendatures when Ross is obviously already overbudget because he has already had to loan his own campaign money. McGlowan also is her campaigns own largest contributor. That does not seem to boad well for the future of the Ross/McGlowan campaigns. So I will have to say that Red should rethink there pretiction and go on to predict that both Ross and McGlowan are funding there own campaigns. But its too late now because it is common knowledge a la the internet.

    Frank Lee, its really easy. You subtract year to date raised from total expenditures ytd to derive at COH. He has raised 572 k and spent 283 k. My apologies, I rounded up earlier.

    Whatever Ross or McGlowan raises only has to take them through May. Whomever wins the primaries will find another round of funding so they can face Childers.

    We should bear in mind that at the end of the day the goal is to replace Childers. The winner of the primaries has my full support.

    I guess I am surprised that some of you are amazed and thrilled by the vast amount of money raised by Nunnelee. He has been running for a much longer time than the other two candidates and the Republican Party Elite (Phil Bryant and Trent Lott) made sure he had two expensive fundraisers. The amazement should be in the amount of money he has spent and who he has spent it on. Take a look at the names and the addresses. I hope this is not an indication of how he plans to use our tax dollars if he is elected.

    As to Ross, he had only started to raise funds in March and stated up front that he did not plan to ask for large donations before the primary. He says he does not want to be indebted to anyone.

    I have not heard of a single fundraiser for McGlowan and I do not think she is looking for funds before the primary either.

    What it all boils down to is that the guy who donated $1000 only gets one vote just like the guy who donated $1.

    Nunnelee has run a smart campaign.
