| This is it. The deadline for congressional candidates to file their second quarter fundraising reports with the FEC passed at midnight, and SSP has combed through hundreds of filings to bring you a collection of all the noteworthy numbers. While this list is fairly massive, it is by no means comprehensive. If we've missed anything, or if you spot any errors, please let us know in the comments. And remember: these numbers are adjusted for rounding. The second column shows cash-on-hand, and the third shows cycle-to-date fundraising.
A few notes before we begin:
- Candidates in Kansas, Michigan and Missouri will file their extended period reports by 7/24, which is why several rows are blank here. Candidates in Oklahama will file their reports by 7/17.
- All NC and IN filings cover the period from 4/17-6/30.
- All PA filings cover the period from 4/3-6/30.
- The MS-01 numbers cover the period from 4/24-630.
- The LA-06 and LA-01 numbers cover the period from 4/14-6/30.
- GA filings in italics cover the period from 4/1-6/25.
- All numbers are in thousands.
A few quick notes before I pass out:
- Democratic challengers who out-raised Republican incumbents: Ethan Berkowitz (AK-AL), Joshua Segall (AL-03), Debbie Cook (CA-46), Nick Leibham (CA-50), Betsy Markey (CO-04), Raul Martinez (FL-21), Suzanne Kosmas (FL-24), Joe Garcia (FL-25), Michael Montagano (IN-03), Jill Derby (NV-02), Dina Titus (NV-03), Vic Wulsin (OH-02), Linda Ketner (SC-01), Michael Skelly (TX-07), Larry Joe Doherty (TX-10), and Darcy Burner (WA-08).
- Republican challengers who out-raised Democratic incumbents: Deborah "The Defrauder" Honeycutt (GA-13), Anne Northup (KY-03), Chris Hackett (PA-10, William Russell (PA-12), Pete Olson (TX-22), John Gard (WI-08).
- PA-12: Who is William Russell, you ask? Answer: Someone, like Deborah Honeycutt, who has spent most of his money on fees to direct mail firms.
- ID-01: Someone help out Bill Sali. He's been having computer problems and hasn't been able to file his report.
- LA-06: Looks like the Prince of Pop will need that cash back on his Discover card before he's back at the break-even point.
- AK-AL: Don Young is just circling the drain. Yet another quarter passes by where he hemorrhages more money: $251K spent vs. $106K brought in. Included in his expenditures are some hefty legal fees: nearly $50K to Akin Gump, $25K to Tobin O'Connor, and $55K to John Wolfe.
- There is a lot of great news for Democrats here, but in particular, the numbers for Jim Himes (CT-04), Ashwin Madia (MN-03), Martin Heinrich (NM-01), Darcy Burner (WA-08), Raul Martinez (FL-21) and Joe Garcia (FL-25) are absolutely stunning. In some races that are still under the radar, Democrats posted solid numbers, including Scott Harper (IL-13), Nick Leibham (CA-50), Sharen Neuhardt (OH-07), Jim Esch (NE-02), Dennis Shulman (NJ-05), Sam Bennett (PA-15), and Judy Feder (VA-10).
Stay tuned for SSP's updated House and Senate ratings, as well as our next SSP Cash Power chart in the next couple of days.
DENVER AIRPORT UPDATE: One thing that I forgot to mention...
- MS-01: Greg Davis' heart just isn't in it anymore. Despite raising over $700K from April 24 through June 30th, the Nathan Lane lookalike took in under $10,000 in the month of June.
