CD8: Kelly Out-Raises Paton in Latest Reporting Period

Posted By on Fri, Aug 13, 2010 at 12:20 AM

Jesse Kelly, the insurgent Republican candidate fighting for the GOP nomination in Congressional District 8, out-raised former state lawmaker Jonathan Paton in the most recent reporting period.

Kelly brought in $78,528 between July 1 and Aug. 4.

Paton, as we reported yesterday, had raised $46,405 in the same period.

Both men are in a furious contest to determine the GOP nominee who will face Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in November.

“The momentum is with us because people realize that a former lobbyist like Paton, with virtually no real-world business experience, is not the best person to face Giffords,” Kelly said in an emailed statement.

Kelly had spent nearly $160,000 during the reporting period, while Paton spent $146,024.

At the end of the reporting period, Paton—who had outraised Kelly in previous reports—had $186,857 on hand. Kelly had $78,980 in the bank. Both candidates are limited in how much of that money they can spend in the primary because some of it is earmarked for the general election.

Giffords continued to outraise both Republicans in the reporting period. She pulled in $90,473 in the period and spent $375,781.

Giffords had more than $1.9 million in the bank as of Aug. 4.
