CD3: MacArthur has $1.75 million COH

Running in the Third Congressional District's Republican Primary, former Randolph Mayor Tom MacArthur reported over $2 million raised in the 1st Quarter and $1.75 million cash-on-hand.

MacArthur personally contributed $2 million to his campaign account, and having secured the GOP county lines in Ocean and Burlington counties, his team is actively setting up fundraisers throughout the district with local Republican leaders and supporters to build his war chest, according to campaign spokesman Chris Russell.

“This has been a very good past few weeks for Tom and the campaign,” said Russell.  “Sweeping the party endorsements in mid-March was a critical first step, and as soon as it ended we began an aggressive campaign on television, in the mail box, online and on the ground.  We have a superior candidate, a more compelling message and all the resources we need to win this primary on Tuesday, June 3rd.”

MacArthur is running against former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan in pursuit of the Republican nomination.
