Davis has $1.3 million in campaign warchest

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis of Taylorville raised more than $550,000 in the recently ended second quarter and has more than $1.3 million on hand, according to figures supplied by his campaign.

Official fundraising totals are due next week to the Federal Election Commission.

Davis' Democratic opponent, former Judge Ann Callis, has not disclosed her second-quarter fundraising totals.

Davis' cash on hand grew by more than $350,000, according to his campaign. On March 31, Davis reported $951,903 on hand; Callis had $513,898.

It's difficult to compare Davis' fundraising this year with his campaign two years ago. In his 2012 campaign, Davis didn't become a candidate until late May, after he was selected to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Tim Johnson, R-Urbana, on the ballot in the 13th Congressional District.

But in that quarter, Davis raised $440,841, of which $241,871 was from individuals and $188,100 from political action committees.

The Davis campaign did not say how much of the last quarter's campaign contributions were from individuals or PACs.

The 13th District stretches from Champaign-Urbana on the northeast to Edwardsville and Collinsville on the southwest. It also includes Springfield, Decatur and parts of Bloomington-Normal.
