Politically Speaking: King has five times the coin of Hubler
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
The latest reporting period for federal office seekers has arrived,
and through the quarter ended March 31, the incumbent in the Iowa 5th
District congressional race is sitting on five times the money as his
challenger. In a filing with the Federal Election Commission,
Republican Congressman Steve King reported $145,422 in receipts for
the quarter, he spent $109K and had $243,387 left as cash on hand.
Democrat Rob Hubler, by comparison, had quarterly receipts of $11,950,
spent virtually that same amount and had $46,633 cash on hand. Those
totals don't include the fundraiser King had in Sergeant Bluff on
April 12, which had plump attendance. Hubler was in Sioux City the
following day, campaigning at Briar Cliff University.
