He also received contributions from at least a half a dozen statehouse lobbyists and lobby groups, as well as the Georgia Chamber and the lobby groups for auto dealers, optometrists, trial lawyers and manufacturers. Davis, whose father served in the state House, also collected a $1,000 check from a national group pushing school choice.
In total, Davis reported collecting about $87,000 in the latest reporting period and $128,000 overall.
That's about twice as much as Bennett reported. The Democrat reported raising about $42,000 in the last month and $69,000 overall.
Bennett received money from about a dozen Democratic lawmakers, state Democratic Party Chairman DuBose Porter, and several union and teacher groups that traditionally back Democratic candidates. He also got a $2,500 check from his former Georgia Tech teammate, NFL star Calvin Johnson, in the latest reporting period.
