Levinson has money advantage

While South Jersey Democrats don't often worry about fundraising, the incumbent GOP Atlantic County Executive has a substantially larger warchest than his Democratic rival. Dennis Levinson has more than $400,000 cash-on-hand, while challenger James McGettigan, the Atlantic County Sheriff, has raised less than $1,000.

Republicans have held the Atlantic County Executive post since Richard Squires ousted Charles Worthington in 1983. The race to defend the sole surviving Republican County Executive (just five years ago, there were GOP County Executives in Bergen, Essex and Mercer counties) is expected to be one of the premier races of 2007.
