MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Democrat Steve Raby has raised about $50,000 more than Republican Mo Brooks in the most recent reporting period in the race for the 5th District Congressional seat in north Alabama.

But Brooks goes into the final two weeks of the campaign with more that $100,000 more cash on hand than Raby.

Federal Election Commission reports show that Raby raised $347,500 from July 1 to Sept. 30 compared to $294,000 raised by Brooks during the same period.

Raby and Brooks are trying to win the seat held by Republican Congressman Parker Griffith. The seat had been held by Democrats for more than 130 years until Griffith switched parties in December. Brooks defeated Griffith in the Republican Party Primary.
