BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Though Republican John Kennedy leads in polls for Louisiana’s U.S. Senate race, he lags his Democratic competitor Foster Campbell in fundraising ahead of the Dec. 10 runoff.

Kennedy, the state treasurer, raised nearly $1 million less than Campbell, a Public Service Commission member, in his latest finance report posted Friday.

Kennedy took in just under $1.6 million from donors from Oct. 20 through Nov. 20, compared to $2.5 million for Campbell. The treasurer had $856,000 remaining in his campaign account at the period’s end, while Campbell had $1.4 million.

Campbell’s donations have spiked from Democrats around the country who see the competition for the nation’s last undecided Senate seat as a way to register criticism of Republican President-elect Donald Trump.

The fundraising lag hasn’t appeared to dent Kennedy’s front-runner status.
