Jerry F. Barnes, who is challenging Thomas E. Hickman for the Republican nomination for county state's attorney, has raised nearly $23,400, almost two-thirds more than the sum garnered by the 20-year incumbent.

A third of the $14,200 Mr. Hickman raised is money he lent hi campaign. According to campaign finance reports filed last week, he lent his committee $5,000.

Mr. Barnes, a Frederick assistant state's attorney who had worked in Mr. Hickman's office for 13 years, counts many local defense lawyers among his biggest contributors.

Charles Hollman and his law partner, J. Barry Hughes, each gave to Mr. Barnes' campaign. Mr. Barnes contributed more than $2,200 to his campaign.

Mr. Hickman, who is seeking his sixth term as the county's top prosecutor, lists contributions from many people in law enforcement, including $775 from James L. Leete, a former state police detective and now an investigator in Mr. Hickman's office. Mr. Hickman also lists contributions of about $100 from several state troopers and other police officers.

Both Republican candidates for clerk of the Circuit Court have raised less than $1,000. Incumbent Larry W. Shipley, donated $500 to his campaign. His primary opponent, former deputy clerk Diane E. O'Leary, has lent her campaign $920. Former Manchester Mayor Phillip R. Miller, who is running unopposed in the Democratic primary, lent his campaign $500.
