At long last, we’ve compiled all the House fundraising numbers you need to know from the FEC database for the first quarter of 2010. (Note, as always, that these numbers are in thousands.)
A few quick notes:
- Democratic challengers who out-raised Republican incumbents: Stephen Raby (AL-05), Ami Bera (CA-03), Cedric Richmond (LA-02), and Tommy Sowers (MO-08).
- Republican challengers who out-raised Democratic incumbents: Jonathan Paton (AZ-08), David Harmer (CA-11), Allen West (FL-22), Andy Harris (MD-01), Steven Palazzo (MS-04), Jeff Miller (NC-11), Rich Ashooh (NH-01), Frank Guinta (NH-01), Scott Sipprelle (NJ-12), Steve Pearce (NM-02), Matt Doheny (NY-23), Richard Hanna (NY-24), Steve Stivers (OH-15), and Scott Rigell (VA-02).
- Democratic challengers with more cash-on-hand than Republican incumbents: Ami Bera (CA-03), Tom Hayhurst (IN-03), Doug Pike (PA-06), John Callahan (PA-15), and Suzan Delbene (WA-08).
- Republican challengers with more cash-on-hand than Democratic incumbents: Randy Altschuler (NY-01), Nan Hayworth (NY-19), Matt Doheny (NY-23), Tom Ganley (OH-13), and David McKinley (WV-01).
- The Swing State Project Award in Recognition of Unparalleled Political Malpractice for 2010 (“The Hostettler”): This quarter’s winner is none other than Larry Kissell (NC-08), for the absolutely pathetic first quarter haul of $72 grand. As a frosh incumbent holding a vulnerable seat, you almost have to try in order to raise that little. That’s positively John Hostettler-esque.
