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.
