Tillis borrows $250K from self for US Senate race

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Almost a fourth of the money North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis says he's raised for his U.S. Senate campaign came from his own pocket.

Tillis' latest campaign report shows the Republican lending $250,000 to his Senate bid on the report period's last day.

He announced last week raising more than $1 million since entering the race in May. The actual report lists $550,000 in contributions for the three months ending Sept. 30 and $830,000 to date. The debt brings the amount over $1 million.

Tillis' campaign has raised the most money and has the most cash among announced candidates for the Republican nomination. Campaign spokesman Jordan Shaw says the loan shows Tillis' level of commitment to the race.

The May primary winner will take on Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan.
