CORNELIUS, N.C. (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Thom Tillis says he raised more than $700,000 during the last three months of 2013.

The amount announced Friday by his campaign is less than what Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan collected in the same period, but it should keep the current state House speaker in a good financial position for the crowded Republican primary.

Tillis' campaign says he has raised more than $1.7 million since joining the race. A campaign spokesman says Tillis had nearly $800,000 in cash as of Dec. 31.

Tillis was the leading fundraiser among GOP primary candidates through September. Campaign reports are due at the end of January.

Hagan's campaign says it brought in more than $2 million in the fourth quarter and had $6.8 million on hand.
