United States Senate candidate Dick Zimmer raised about $273,000 since May 15th, bringing his total raised since entering the race in April to $751,555.
Zimmer has $411,029 on hand.
“Considering that my fundraising began in mid-April, I am very encouraged by the level of support I have received in such a short amount of time,” said Zimmer. “It is clear that, as the cost of living in New Jersey becomes more and more unaffordable, New Jerseyans want more effective leadership in Washington.”
About $300,000 of Zimmer’s money is from a self-loan.
Zimmer is at a significant cash disadvantage to incumbent Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who has $1.3 million in the bank after spending about $5 million to fend off a primary challenge from Rep. Rob Andrews.
