First District Senate Race

A quick update on the campaign finance reports for the Democrat candidates for State Senate in Kentucky's 1st District which includes Fulton, Hickman, Carlisle, Graves, Calloway, Trigg and Lyon Counties.

Carroll Hubbard reported a balance of $52,116.41. He raised $23,839.78 for the reporting period and had spent $4,523.65.

Rick Johnson reported a balance of $21,294.64. He raised $31,050.00 and had spent $9,755.36.

Some interesting notes while looking at the reports: Rick Johnson only received one contribution from anyone living in the First Senatorial District. Both did receive contributions from friends across the State. Former Gov. Jones contributed to Johnson while former Gov. Paul Patton contributed to Carroll Hubbard. Hubbard also received a contribution from State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach while Johnson received a contribution from Attorney General Jack Conway.
