Democrat Wayne Herriman spent $150,000 on advertising in the last two months, while raising about $19,000, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday. Herriman, of Muskogee, is one of three Democrats vying for the nomination in the race to replace Rep. Dan Boren, D-Muskogee, who is retiring.
Democrat Rob Wallace, of Fort Gibson, has not filed his pre-primary report, but he did report $5,000 in contributions topping $1,000 in the last few days. In the final weeks before the primary, candidates must disclose donations of $1,000 or more within 48 hours.
Republican Markwayne Mullin, of Westville, has reported $8,500 in contributions over $1,000 since the requirement kicked in.
Six Republicans are running for the GOP nomination in the eastern Oklahoma district, which has not had an open seat race since 2004, when Boren first won.
