SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — New campaign fundraising reports show Provo Mayor John Curtis has raised more money in his bid for Jason Chaffetz's seat in Congress than his two challengers for the Republican nomination combined.

The Republican mayor raised more than $232,000 from April through June, though $100,000 of that was a loan Curtis gave to his campaign.

Fellow GOP contender Tanner Ainge, the son of Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, raised about $131,000. That includes a $40,000 loan he gave to his campaign.

Former lawmaker Christopher Herrod raised about $79,000.

The three will compete in an August 15 primary for Chaffetz's seat in Utah's GOP-heavy 3rd Congressional District.

The winner of the primary will face Democratic physician Kathie Allen in November.
