OKLAHOMA CITY — The campaign for one early front-runner for the Republican nomination in the race for outgoing U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn’s seat has raised $1.2 million thus far, while another early front-runner’s campaign has raised more than $800,000, they announced Monday.

U.S. Rep. James Lankford’s campaign, Families for James Lankford, said it has now raised a total of $1.2 million and has more than $1 million on hand and that 82 percent of campaign donations have come from within the state of Oklahoma.

“I am truly grateful to receive the support from thousands of Oklahomans who have given from $1 dollar to the maximum $2,600 so early in this primary campaign,” Lankford said in a statement. “The momentum is building daily as our volunteers and campaign team are working to reach Republican voters in all 77 counties.”
