Some Winners & Losers are obvious this week, as candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives disclosed how they've done as fundraisers over the last three months. Republican Senate candidate Dick Zimmer, with $411K cash on hand, is struggling. So is his Democratic opponent, incumbent Frank Lautenberg, who has just $1.3M in his war chest -- not much for a four-term Senator. But Lautenberg can self finance, and Zimmer says he can't.
Democrat John Adler is a clear winner: he's raised $1.9 million for his third district race -- that's more than any non-incumbent candidate nationally. His GOP rival for the House seat Democrats haven't won since 1882, Chris Myers, has $150,000 left after a tough primary. In the 7th district, Linda Stender is way ahead in the money game. Republican Leonard Lance has less than $81K in the bank -- not enough to run a race for Sheriff in a politically competitive county.
Kudos to the Blind Rabbi, Dennis Shulman, who has raised $585K in his very uphill fight against Scott Garrett. And to Christopher Smith, the 14-term GOP incumbent in the 4th district, who is taking Josh Zeitz seriously and now has $500K in his campaign treasury.
