Third Congressional District Republican candidate Jon Runyan has amassed $150,720 toward his campaign account, $100,000 of which is Runyan's own money.
The former Eagles offensive lineman turned political candidate has $137,559 cash on hand.
Runyan's campaign says he opened the campaign account on March 3rd - relatively late - which is why it doesn't reflect a bigger ammount.
"We've raised nearly another $30,000 in the last two weeks since the deadline for the first quarter, with a slew of events coming up," said Runyan campaign strategist Chris Russell. "We feel good."
Runyan is running in the Republican Primary against former Tabernacle Committeeman Justin Murphy. The winner of that contest wants to face U.S. Rep. John Adler (D-Cherry Hill) in the November general election.

"It's incredible, it's a dream. I would never have imagined that I would be running for mayor, but to have Ken Gibson say that, I didn't expect it. Having Ken Gibson on my side is the ultimate reference check. It's the ultimate in street credibility. Mr. Gibson said it, when he was running for mayor, people said that they weren't ready, but Mr. Gibson said 'ready or not, here I come.' I think that's apropos for my campaign. Newark is ready for this." Newark Mayoral candidate Ras Baraka- PolitickerNJ.com
