CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Democrat Nick Casey spent about $1.1 million on his congressional bid last quarter, almost double Republican competitor Alex Mooney’s spending.

Mooney outraised Casey, however, and carries a cash edge heading into the election homestretch in West Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.

In federal election filings Wednesday, Mooney reported spending $633,500 from July through September. Both candidates bought expensive chunks of TV ad time.

Mooney also raised $594,500 and had $317,700 left to start October. Casey brought in $451,400 last quarter and had $224,000 remaining in his account.

Casey and Mooney are the main candidates vying for GOP Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito’s seat. She faces Democrat Natalie Tennant for an open U.S. Senate seat.

Casey is the former state Democratic Party chairman. Mooney was a state senator and party chairman for Maryland.
