WASHINGTON - Republican Stephen Fincher continues to outpace Democrat Roy Herron in the 8th Congressional District money race, Federal Election Commission filings indicate.
Following last Friday's third quarter disclosures, which showed Fincher raising $866,026 to Herron's $764,705, both candidates have filed supplemental reports.
In them, Fincher has raised $35,500 since Friday from individuals and from political action committees such as Lorillard Tobacco, General Dynamics, Merck, Pfizer, and cotton and from congressional campaigns in Missouri and Georgia.
Herron received $19,000 in new contributions from an employee of the U.S. Corps of Engineers in Vicksburg, Miss.; lawyers from Dunlap and Dyersburg; a veterinarian in Cookeville; and unions representing painters and operating engineers.
