Matt Salmon continues to lead Kirk Adams in fundraising.
The former congressman out-raised Adams by almost $50,000 in the second quarter of the year, which runs from April 1 to June 30.
Salmon is headed into the final weeks of the 5th Congressional District Republican primary with more than double the cash on hand than Adams.
Adams, a former state House speaker, raised $61,636. Salmon took in $110,076.
Chad Heywood, Adams’ campaign manager, said the comparatively small amount of fundraising won’t be a problem, and Salmon’s total wasn’t too impressive for a lobbyist and former Congressman.
“We believe we have enough to get our message out,” Heywood said.
Salmon, who served three terms in Congress before leaving office in 2000, also outspent Adams by almost $48,000 for the quarter, but the former House Speaker has nearly kept pace with him in total spending.
