LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Campaign finance reports have revealed that Circuit Judge Dan Kemp of Mountain View has raised more funds than state Supreme Court Justice Courtney Goodson, his opponent in the chief justice race.

Goodson and Kemp are running to replace interim Chief Justice Howard Brill, who was appointed by Gov. Asa Hutchinson after Chief Justice Jim Hannah retired at the end of August.

Kemp has reported raising $86,485 in November, including a $20,000 loan he gave to his campaign. He entered the race in early November.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1I9mzfb ) reports that campaign finance reports filed Tuesday list $81,115 in total campaign contributions for Goodson. The reports say she accepted over $9,000 in contributions in November.

Goodson has been in the race since early September.
