Republican U.S. Rep. Andy Barr continues to enjoy a significant cash advantage over his likely Democratic opponent, Elisabeth Jensen, raising more than $77,000 in April.
Barr, in his first term representing Central Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District, has more than $1.1 million in cash on hand, but his campaign spent more than $63,000 of its April haul on fundraising and mail pieces.
Despite those April expenditures, Barr is far outpacing Jensen, who raised more than $23,000 in April while spending more than $64,000 in the same period. Jensen, who has loaned her campaign $100,000, has
about $184,000 in cash on hand.
Democrat Geoff Young had not filed his pre-primary fundraising report with the Federal Election Commission as of Thursday afternoon. All but $600 of the $50,600 Young has raised previously came from a loan he gave to his campaign.
At the end of March, Young reported $1,600 in expenditures and $49,464 in cash on hand.
