LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Democrat trying to unseat Sen. Tom Cotton in Arkansas is trailing the incumbent Republican lawmaker in fundraising.

Josh Mahony on Monday reported raising about $110,000 during the three-month fundraising period that ended June 30. Cotton reported raising $1 million during the same fundraising period.

Mahony's fundraising total included $25,477 he gave his campaign, and he reported having about $51,000 in the bank. Mahony spent $59,243 during the quarter.
