NASHVILLE -- U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., had a better than six-to-one campaign cash advantage over his GOP challenger Joe Carr at the end of the latest fundraising quarter.
State Rep. Carr, R-Lascassas, says he raised $255,000 between Jan. 1 and March 31. The campaign raised $250,000 in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The campaign says Carr has about $460,000 in cash on hand.
Alexander, who is seeking a third term, recently announced he raised more than $614,000 in the first quarter of 2014. He also has more than $3.1 million in cash on hand.
Dynamics in the race changed recently when Memphis millionaire physician and businessman George Flinn announced he was running in the August GOP primary election.
