        FORT WRIGHT — Kentucky U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, a Southgate Republican, has more than $400,000 in his re-election campaign fund, according to Federal Election Commission report filed by his campaign.

        Through the first six months of this year, Mr. Bunning raised $175,633 — after starting the year with $281,920.

        He spent $50,201 through June and has a cash balance of $407,353, according to the report.

        Mr. Bunning was unavailable to comment Monday. Neither his campaign nor Senate staff planned a statement on the fund raising, said David Young, a member of Mr. Bunning's Washington, D.C., staff.

        Susan Dixen, spokeswoman for the Kentucky Democratic Party, also declined to comment.

        Mr. Bunning, elected to Senate in 1998 after 12 years as representative, has indicated he plans to seek a second term in 2004.

        Gov. Paul Patton, a Pikeville Democrat whose second gubernatorial term ends in 2003, has said he is likely to challenge Mr. Bunning in 2004.
