Fundraising is weak for most of 10 state school superintendent candidates

ATLANTA | The 10 declared candidates for state superintendent of schools reported raising nearly $400,000 collectively, but only four brought in more than $10,000.

Leading the pack is Republican Fitz Johnson with $265,000, including $147,000 he lent the campaign. He has $238,000 in cash on hand, more than the other nine candidates put together.

Next is Rep. Alisha Morgan, a Democrat, with $78,600. Republican Nancy Jester raised $22,500.

Two previous candidates for the post are in the middle of the bunch. Kira Willis, who is running as a Republican this time after losing four years ago as a Libertarian, reported raising $21,000, including her loan of $18,000. Republican Richard Woods has raised $8,000 so far.

Also reporting were Matt Shultz, $2,650; Doeford Garfield Shirley, $330; and no contributions reported for Sharyl Dawes, Billy Woods and Mary Kay Bacallao.
