      McKinney leads GOP lieutenant governor money race

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Retired Kiawah Island developer Pat McKinney appears to be leading the money race for the GOP's lieutenant governor nominee, just two weeks before primary voters go to the polls.

      McKinney's pre-election report shows he has about $202,000 available for the June 10 four-way Republican primary. The $832,000 total he's raised for the election includes a $245,000 loan to himself.

      Former attorney general Henry McMaster reported Friday having about $103,000 cash on hand. Retired Army chaplain Ray Moore reported Saturday having about $6,700 available.

      Mike Campbell, the younger son of the late Gov. Carroll Campbell, had not filed his pre-election report as of Tuesday.

      State law required candidates with a primary opponent to file a report by Monday, but a grace period essentially extends that deadline to Saturday.
