(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Democratic Congressman Brad Carson has more than $1-million in his war chest for the race to succeed Senator Don Nickles.

Meanwhile, Republican Kirk Humphreys has raised more than 550-thousand dollars for the Senate race in just two months.

Humphreys, former mayor of Oklahoma City, surpassed his goal of raising 400-thousand dollars by the end of the year. Humphreys' campaign manager, Josh Kivett, says that after expenses, Humphreys finished the year with about $425,000 in the bank.

Carson had $342,000 in his House re-election account before Nickles announced his retirement in October.

Humphreys has received fund-raising help from Nickles and Senator Jim Inhofe, both Republicans.
