CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia’s three Republican congressmen posted six-figure fundraising hauls last quarter.

Freshman Alex Mooney raised $183,600, the most out of the state’s U.S. House members in the April-through-June quarter. He has $223,900 in campaign cash.

Mooney’s Republican primary challenger next year, Ken Reed, has almost nothing in his campaign account after announcing. He largely self-funded a 2014 campaign against Mooney and other Republicans.

Freshman Evan Jenkins yielded about $155,800 and has about $274,600 in campaign cash.

Jenkins doesn’t have a 2016 challenger yet.

In his first quarter since opting against running for governor, David McKinley raised $102,000 and still has $529,200 in his account.

Former Democratic state Del. Mike Manypenny has opened a campaign account against McKinley. He hasn’t posted fundraising numbers yet.

Campaign finance reports were due Wednesday.
