Democrat U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall raised almost $324,000 last quarter for his contested re-election bid, while GOP challenger Evan Jenkins banked about $193,500.
Rahall is seeking his 20th term in Congress in West Virginia's highly targeted 3rd Congressional District. Jenkins, a state senator, changed his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican to challenge Rahall.
Outside groups have already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising in the race.
Democrat Richard Ojeda raised about $15,800 and has $6,500 in cash for a primary challenge against Rahall.
The district includes Huntington, Beckley and Bluefield.
