Money talks

Posted By on Tue, Aug 19, 2008 at 11:39 AM

Democrat Joe White, who's challenging Republican Sen. Gilbert Baker's re-election bid in Conway, is crowing because he has more cash on hand than the incumbent and outraised Baker in July. True enough.

But White's news release omitted that Baker has raised more money overall and spent more so far. (It might have been less had he not had to pay for that UCA tent at his June fund-raiser.)

To date: White has raised $281,924, spent $77,993 and has $203,931 on hand as of the Aug. 15 report.

Baker has raised $327,977, spent $127,028 and had $202,600 on hand.

You can go to secretary of state to search for details.
