State Sen. Todd Lamb (R-Edmond) leads the race for Lieutenant Governor when it comes to fundraising. His campaign ended the first quarter with the most cash on hand.

The Lamb campaign brought in $140,000 in the past quarter, spent $33,000, and has $479,000 of cash on hand. His primary election opponent, State Rep. John Wright (R-Broken Arrow), raised $2,500 and spent $1,600 in the past quarter, for a cash on hand total of $28,000.

The only Democrat candidate at this point, State Sen. Kenneth Corn (D-Poteau), raised $162,000 in the first quarter, but spent $87,000. He had $448,000 on hand at the end of the quarter.
