With four months to go before the election, Assembly Democrats have a nearly three-to-one cash advantage over the Republicans.
The Assembly Democratic Campaign Committee has $989,244 on hand to Assembly Republican Victory’s $334,429, according to reports filed yesterday with the Election Law Enforcement Commission.
Democrats raised more than twice as much as Republicans last quarter, taking in $397,624 to the GOP’s $176,889.
All 80 assembly seats are up this year, although only a couple districts at most are considered competitive. The bulk of both parties’ money will likely be spend in District 1, where Democrats Nelson Albano (D-Vineland) and Matt Milam (D-Vineland) are expected to have a tough race against Cape May County Republicans Michael Donohue and John McCann.
Democrats also have a large monetary advantage in the state Senate, where there is only one special election this year in South Jersey that is not expected to be competitive. The Senate Democratic Majority has $927,699 on hand to the Republicans’ $442,333. Democrats took in $132,675 last quarter to Republicans’ $101,468.
