The fundraising race is a close one among Democrats seeking the nomination for Lieutenant Governor.

Former Rehoboth Beach Commissioner Kathy McGuiness barely outpaced state Sen. Bethany Hall-Long (D-Middletown), collecting more than $127,000 in donations.

McGuiness also loaned herself more than $50,000 since the beginning of the year and has more than $87,000 cash on hand.

Hall-Long still took in more than $121,000 since January and has about $105,000 that she can spend on a one-month blitz before the primary.

New Castle County Register of Wills Ciro Poppiti had a strong showing, raising nearly $75,000. He still has about $37,000 on-hand after contributing $55,000 of his own money last year.

Brad Eaby, Greg Fuller and Sherry Dorsey Walker collected significantly less than the top three and each have less than $8,000 in cash left.

One of them will face Republican La Mar Gunn in November's general election. Fundraising data for Gunn won't be available until October.
