U.S. Rep. Don Young reported ending the first quarter of the year with nearly $700,000 on hand toward his re-election bid.

The Republican reported bringing in more than $77,000 between January and March.

He enjoys a massive cash advantage over the little-known Republican candidates also running, who so far have reported raising little or no money.

Democrats vying for his seat include Forrest Dunbar and Frank Vondersaar. Vondersaar has made previous failed runs for U.S. House and Senate.

Democrat Matt Moore, who unsuccessfully sought his party's nomination for U.S. House race in 2012, recently withdrew his candidacy for this year's race to run for the state Legislature.
