In race for House seat held by GOP since 1956, Lance has less money than an independent candidate

In the race for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th district, the Republican candidate trails an independent in cash on hand. State Sen. Leonard Lance has just $80,792 in his war chest, as of his most recent Federal Election Commission filing, and Michael Hsing, a Republican Councilman from Bridgewater who briefly challenged Lance for the GOP nomination and is now running as an independent, has $91,637. Democrat Linda Stender, a State Assemblywoman, has $1.2 million in the bank.

The seat has been held by the Republicans since 1956; incumbent Michael Ferguson is not seeking re-election.
