It's that time of the season: another round of campaign finance reports. Time to dig into them and see who got what.
Lynn Fitch hauled in $296,290 this period (yes, you read that right) and $499,830 for the year. She reports cash on hand of $127,223. Major donation: Daddy Fitch loaned the campaign $252,000 this period and $377,000 for the year (No mention of said loan on Y'all Politics or Majority in Mississippi. Don't want to hurt a paid advertiser I guess.). I didn't recognize any major donors in the bond business but someone can correct me if I am wrong. Report
Lee Yancey reported $107,225 for the period and $314,869 for the year. He has $35,227 cash on hand.

Donald & Gamble, LLP employees donated $15,000. Report, report
