Aide: Lentz raised about $300K last quarter
State Representative Bryan Lentz (D-Delaware) brought in about $300,000 in campaign contributions during the last three months of 2009, giving his 7th District congressional campaign more than $450,000 in cash on hand, according to campaign manager Vincent Rongione.
The fundraising haul, to be detailed in campaign finance reports published at the end of the month, was short of the $580,000 that likely Republican opponent Pat Meehan says he raised last quarter. But the high cash on hand number signaled that the Lentz campaign is spending lightly thus far, saving its resources for what’s expected to be one of the most competitive House races in the country.
The campaign has raised more than half-a-million dollars during the cycle so far. Regardless of individual fundraising numbers, both the Republican and Democratic House campaign committees are expected to spend heavily in the district.
