Justice Courtney Goodson says she's loaned another $211,000 to her campaign to lead the Arkansas Supreme Court as she heads into the final week before the March 1 election.

Goodson reported loaning her campaign for chief justice a total of $466,000 since launching her bid last year. She's running against Circuit Judge Dan Kemp for the seat. Tuesday was the deadline to file pre-election fundraising reports.

Goodson reported raising $46,350 and spending $325,086 between Feb. 1 and Feb. 20. Kemp raised $60,698 and spent $226,940 during the same period. Kemp has raised $342,149 since launching his bid and spent $271,435. Goodson has raised $267,504 total and spent $727,118.

The race has been marked by the involvement of an outside group that has more than $600,000 on television ads criticizing Goodson.
