Fifth District Campaigns
By Associated Press
Oklahoma City – OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Federal campaign reports show former state Rep. Kevin Calvey had more than three times as much cash on hand last week as his opponent James Lankford in the race for the open 5th District congressional seat.
Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission late Thursday show Calvey had nearly $193,000 cash on hand, compared to about $56,000 for Lankford.
The reports detail expenses and receipts through Aug. 4.
Calvey and Lankford will face off in an Aug. 24 runoff election for the Republican nomination. Lankford received 34 percent and Calvey got 32 percent in the seven-man primary on July 27.
The winner will face Democrat Billy Coyle in November.
Current Republican U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin is vacating the seat to run for governor.
