Hill: $568K raised for Ark. congressional bid

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Little Rock banking executive French Hill's campaign says he raised $568,000 in the final months of 2013 in his bid for a central Arkansas congressional seat.

Hill's campaign announced Thursday that he had $534,000 in the bank for his bid for the 2nd Congressional District. Hill announced he was seeking the Republican nomination for the seat in October after Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin said he wouldn't seek a third term.

State Rep. Ann Clemmer and retired Army Col. Conrad Reynolds are also seeking the Republican nomination for the seat. Former North Little Rock Mayor Pat Hays is the only Democrat running.

Hill is the chairman and chief executive officer of Delta Trust & Banking Corp.
