SALT LAKE CITY -- The latest campaign finance reports show congressional delegation has collected thousands of dollars in campaign cash over the past three months.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah's 3rd Congressional District raised almost $166,000 from April through June, according to his latest filings.

Rep. Rob Bishop, who represents District 1, brought in more than $68,000, while Rep. Chris Stewart of District 2 collected $63,000.

All three Republicans are up for re-election in 2014.

The state's lone Democrat in Congress, Rep. Jim Matheson, outraised his Republican colleagues by earning $275,000 in recent months.

Matheson will face a rematch in 2014 against Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love, whom he narrowly defeated last November.

And while neither of Utah's senators faces re-election in 2014, both Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch have brought in $91,000 and $52,000, respectively.
