Campaign finance reports show that Georgia’s incumbent Republican U.S. senators have built a healthy fundraising advantage over their rivals in the state’s dual Senate races.

Republican Sen. David Perdue, seeking a second term in November, reported raising nearly $1.9 million in the last three months of 2019. He finished the year with $7.8 million in the bank. Perdue’s closest challenger, Democrat Jon Ossoff, raised $1 million in the same period and finished the year with $1.5 million in the bank.
