ST. LOUIS — Congressmen Russ Carnahan and William Lacy Clay are on similar financial footing heading into a Democratic primary in St. Louis.

Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission show Carnahan raised more money than Clay during the past quarter and has slightly more in his campaign account.

Carnahan raised nearly $145,000 from January through March, while Clay raised nearly $84,000. Both spent most of that money.

At the end of the period, Carnahan had $488,481 in his campaign account compared with $406,066 for Clay.

Clay and Carnahan both are running in the 1st Congressional District. Missouri lost one of its nine U.S. House seats after the 2010 census, and the new map split Carnahan's previous 3rd District into several pieces.
