Gooch has almost $250k on hand

Sixth Congressional District Republican candidate Diane Gooch has nearly $250,000 in her campaign warchest, according to the Federal Election Commission. 

Gooch spokeswoman Toni Angelini said over 300 people from the 6th District have contributed over $110,000 to the GOP establishment candidate.

“I am pleased to see how well Diane is being embraced by the people of the district,” state Sen. Joe Kyrillos (R-Middletown) said in a statement. “Her FEC filing proves that she is the best candidate to become the new fresh face in Congress.” 

Gooch is running in the Republican Primary against Highlands Mayor Anna Little.

The winner of their contest goes up against U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-Long Branch), who has $4 million in the bank.

Little is depending more on grassroots organizing than money.
