~DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Republican Senate candidate Mark Jacobs says he raised $400,000 from donors last year, but the former energy executive won't reveal if he has put his own cash into his campaign account.
     The Jacobs campaign announced Thursday that Jacobs had collected $400,000 during the fourth quarter of 2013. A campaign aide declined to detail Jacobs' contributors or say if Jacobs had made any additional personal contributions. That information will be available after campaign finance reports are filed later this month.
     Jacobs, an Iowa native, formerly served as chief executive officer of Texas-based Reliant Energy. He has great personal wealth but hasn't disclosed whether he plans to spend his own money on his campaign.
     Jacobs is one of several candidates seeking Iowa's open U.S. Senate seat in 2014.
