Augusta businessman Rick Allen's congressional campaign announced Tuesday that he had raised $ 141,970 in the first month of his campaign to replace Democrat John Barrow in Georgia's 12th District seat.

“We have a lot of work ahead of us but I am more confident than ever that we will have the resources to get our message out to the people of the district,” said Allen, a Republican, in a news release.

The campaign also will show $112,959 on hand in its first quarter campaign finance report, which is due Monday and covers the period from entry into the race at the beginning of June to June 30.

...is pretty bad enough. I wonder how a tool of 'connected' Augusta will fare against Representative Barrow in 2014.
