Scozzafava Lagging in Fund-Raising, But Beating Hoffman?

Preliminary campaign finance disclosures by the candidates vying to replace John McHugh in Congress are online, and confirm that Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava is lagging behind her Democratic opponent in fund-raising, but beats the Conservative candidate.

The Republican assemblywoman has raised $233,000 this election cycle and has loaned herself $12,000. She has $40,703 on hand, but no obligations other than the self-loan were reported.

Bill Owens, the Democratic Party’s nominee, has raised $502,000 since he was named the candidate in August; he has $128,000 on hand and owes $125,000.

Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party’s nominee, has raised $205,000; he has $73,000 and owes $102,000 to himself and reported $113,000 in other obligations. (He’s also, reportedly, raised another $210,000 online in the last week.)
