It was a few days late, but the campaign of 9th district congressional candidate Todd Johnson filed his updated campaign finance report with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday night.
Through May 18, the former Union County commissioner, who’s challenging U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger in Tuesday’s Republican primary, received contributions totaling $76,395 and reported loans of $90,100.
The contributions were mostly from individuals who live in the recently redrawn district, which stretches from southern Mecklenburg County east to Bladen County.
In addition, Johnson loaned his campaign $20,100 and got a bank loan of $70,000, said the campaign’s treasurer, Baxter Starnes.
Johnson’s campaign finance report said it has spent $94,797 and had cash on hand totaling $71,697.
Also challenging the two-term Pittenger in the GOP primary is the Rev. Mark Harris, senior pastor of First Baptist Church.
