Perry’s latest finance report shows him outraising Democratic challengers, while also spending more than it raised

Perry’s campaign raised just over $490,000 from the beginning of January to April 3, but spent just under $525,000, campaign finance records show. As of last week, his campaign had just under $515,000 cash on hand, which is less than he had at this point in the previous cycle. On April 28, 2022, Perry’s campaign had just under $790,000 on hand.
