Two candidates in a Madison County supervisors' race spent and raised more than $75,000.

Campaign finance reports show that challenger John Bell Crosby raised $83,486 and spent $80,554 in defeating incumbent Doug Jones. Jones raised $80,554 and spent $75,930.

The report covered campaign contributions and disbursements from Jan. 1, 2006, through Sept. 30, 2007.

All candidates and political committees for county-wide and county district offices must file campaign finance reports with their circuit clerks.

Candidates for the legislature or any statewide office are required to file reports with the secretary of state's office.

Contributions of more than $200 must be itemized.

Editor's Note:
When this story was originally posted on The Associated Press wire that goes to all A.P. subscribers, it incorrectly listed this as a Neshoba County supervisor's race. When alerted to the error, the story was first removed while the error was investigated. The story originated with The Madison County Journal, but was transmitted to the A.P. from its affiliated newspaper, the Neshoba Democrat, and that was the apparent source of the mixed-up information.
