JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Rep. Don Young holds a huge fundraising advantage in his 2014 re-election bid, ending the last quarter with more than $630,000 on hand.

The Republican raised more than $175,000 between July 1 and Sept. 30. His Federal Election Commission disclosure shows the bulk of his contributions were from individuals, with $41,500 from political committees.

John Cox, who has unsuccessfully challenged Young for the GOP nomination in the past, reported no fundraising during the period and $870 on hand.

Among Democrats, Forrest Dunbar reported raising about $21,800 during the quarter and ending it with about $18,500.

Matt Moore, who unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for the House in 2012, brought in more than $15,700 but $12,000 of that was a personal loan. Moore ended the quarter with nearly $2,400 available.
