Sumter tax attorney Archie Parnell said Tuesday his campaign has raised nearly $340,000 since he announced his second bid to represent South Carolina’s 5th District in Congress.

Parnell’s campaign has brought in $339,853 since Oct. 9, when the Democrat said he would run again for the congressional seat in 2018, according to year-end figures.

That total includes a $100,000 loan from the candidate, plus individual donations from just under 2,000 others. The campaign said it spent $120,000 in the same time period.
