Holden has more than $880K on hand

Holden has more than $880K on hand

Congressman Tim Holden (D-17) is closing in on a million bucks for his reelection bid.

Holden raised about $213,000 between April 29 and June 30, according to recently filed campaign finance data. Despite not having a serious primary opponent, he spent $180,000 during the period, and finished with almost $885,000 in the bank.

Holden’s Republican opponent, state Senator Dave Argall (R-Schuylkill), had not yet disclosed his latest fundraising numbers on Monday afternoon. But he raised relatively little on his way to a crowded GOP primary win. He had just over $70,000 in the bank a few weeks before the May 18 primary.

The race between the two is currently No. 9 on the pa2010.com Congressional Power Rankings.

    For a few races….

    Im getting the feeling that Democrats in Name Only will need every penny they can spare. They’ll need it to cover for the disappointment they’ve created by turning on their base.

    You’re right STEELBLITZ1. It’ll be interesting to see who gave his campaign money. I can tell you right now he doesn’t raise that much money from the little people. When you look at his quarterly filing you will see the majority comes from King Coal, the telecoms, drug cos, and other industries. Timmy is in Corporate America’s back pocket.

    Bet on it: Argall is in a big hole following the primary. He spent far more than he took in. What he did take in was primarily from the sources who must ante up since he was elected to the state senate in the expectation tht he will stay there.

    Holden routinely gets half his campaign cash from unions, most of the rest from lobbyists.

    Comparatively, very little for either candidate comes in small donations.

    Tim and Dave are opposite sides of the same coin.

    Shame they both can’t lose.
