After starting TV blitz, Holden banks half-a-million
His TV advertising campaign well under way, Congressman Tim Holden (D-17) entered the home stretch before Election Day with a little more than half-a-million bucks still at his disposal, according to campaign finance data.
Holden raised about $206,000 during the third quarter of the year, according to his campaign finance report. Through September, he had spent almost $400,000 on TV. And he finished the period with about $528,000 in cash on hand.
The Democratic incumbent faces Republican Dave Argall in the central Pennsylvania district, in a race that’s currently No. 10 on the pa2010.com Congressional Power Rankings. Campaign finance reports are not due until Oct. 15, and Argall’s fundraising numbers had not yet been reported.
