Omaha attorney releases fundraising tally for gubernatorial bid

Jan 25, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Republican Bryan Slone is reporting $328,000 raised for his Nebraska gubernatorial campaign in the final weeks of 2013.

The Omaha tax attorney and accountant reported $280,750 in cash contributions and about $47,400 of in-kind contributions in his latest filing with the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission.

Slone's campaign spent nearly $26,700 during the reporting period and ended the year with about $254,100 in cash on hand.

Slone is competing in a six-man Republican primary to replace Governor Dave Heineman, who can't run in 2014 because of term limits. The 56-year-old is a former Reagan administration tax lawyer and staffer for former U.S. Representative Hal Daub of Omaha.
