ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Senate candidate Jack Kingston continues to lead fellow Republican David Perdue in fundraising, reporting $1.6 million in contributions over the last two months.

Perdue, the former CEO of Dollar General, received $974,000 in contributions for the same period. Kingston, a congressman from Savannah, also has more cash on hand, about $1.15 million heading into the July 22 runoff.

Perdue reports about $783,000 cash on hand. He also loaned his campaign an additional $500,000, bringing his total personal investment in the race to $3.15 million.

The race is among a dozen being watched nationally as Republicans seek control of the Senate. The winner of the GOP runoff will face Democrat Michelle Nunn and Libertarian Amanda Swafford in November.
