In the race to represent Arizona’s 1st Congressional District, former Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick and Republican Jonathan Paton boasted their best, and somewhat comparable, fundraising quarters.

Kirkpatrick raised $357,000, while Paton raised $325,000.

But Kirkpatrick maintains a dominating financial advantage in the race, with $838,000 cash on hand, nearly a half-million dollars more than Paton’s $343,000.

Kirkpatrick has raised $1.3 million since launching her campaign in early 2011, shortly after losing the seat to Republican Rep. Paul Gosar, who is running for re-election in a more Republican-favoring district to the west of CD1.

Paton has raised a total of $553,000.

Kirkpatrick has also already spent $564,000 on the race; Paton has spent less than half that amount.

Another Democrat, Wenona Benally Baldenegro, raised $18,000 during the past quarter, and has raised $86,000 total.
