The LuLac Edition #1240, July 18th, 2010
10th District Democrat Chris Carney can get solace from the fact that his challenger Tom Marino has had a disappointing fundraising period. A contested primary as well as getting out of the starting gate late has put Marino behind the 8 ball. Marino raised about $84,000 between April 28 and June 30, according to newly-filed campaign finance data. He spent almost $124,000 during the same period, and finished last month with only $11,000 in the bank. Meanwhile it is said that Carney is getting close to the $700,000 mark and has spent very little of that warchest. How that shakes out in the general is anyone’s guess but if you were running a tough campaign to outs an incumbent, you’d rather have more than less.
