The Daily Kos Elections site tabulated the second quarter fundraising numbers for all competitive House races, and finds the torrid money chase continuing. Seven candidates, all incumbents, now have more than $3 million in their campaign accounts with well over three months remaining in the campaign cycle.
The top fundraiser is Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) who has $6.1 million in the bank. He is followed by New Jersey freshman Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D) who possesses $4.5 million. Next is Missouri Republican Rep. Ann Wagner ($3.4 million, but much of that was raised in anticipation of a Senate campaign that she ultimately decided against), followed by Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) with $3.2 million, Peter King (R-NY) and Ron Kind (D-WI), both with $3.1 million, and Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) who has just over $3 million. The latter man will be using most of that money, however, in a state Attorney General’s race to be decided September 13th.
