Latest Campaign Filings Show Close Race in State House
Leading Candidates Raised Nearly Same Amount
The most recent campaign financial disclosures show that incumbent Andy Holt outraised his opponent, Democrat Angela Callis by less than $600.
“Clearly this is a close race and I’m excited to have so much support here in the district”, said Callis, “it’s a testament to my grassroots support and life lived here in Northwest Tennessee.” Candidates are required to file regular disclosures so that the public can see who is funding political campaigns.
Incumbent Rep. Holt’s disclosure showed nearly $6,000 raised, with over 80% coming from Nashville and out of state PACs. Challenger Angela Callis raised nearly $5,500, primarily from individual donors. Independent candidate Benny Castleman raised only $200 and had less than $5,000 cash on hand.
