Some $685,000 poured into the 2nd Congressional District campaigns of Republican Markwayne Mullin and Democrat Rob Wallace between Aug. 9 and Sept. 30, the latest Federal Election Commission reports show.
Wallace raised $364,525 during the period, including $81,850 from political action committees.
Mullin raised $321,528 during the same period, with $132,000 coming from political action committees.
The reports filed late Monday are considered quarterly reports, but cover only the Aug. 9-Sept. 30 period because Wallace and Mullin had to file reports prior to their Aug. 28 runoff elections.
For the entire quarter, Wallace raised $501,977 and Mullin $446,892.
Independent Michael Fulks did not raise or spend enough money to require an FEC report.
In the 1st Congressional District, Republican Jim Bridenstine raised $251,702 for the entire quarter, with $107,046 from PACs.
Democrat John Olson raised $137,882, with $7,500 from PACs.
