Rothman has $1.7 million COH

U.S. Rep. Steve Rothman (D-9) of Fairlawn has $1,749,155.89 cash on hand after raising $103,034 during the second quarter of 2011, according to Federal Election Commission (FEC) reports. 

Now in the middle of his eighth term, the Bergen County congressman was the lone member of the New Jersey congressional delegation to endorse Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic Primary.

Sources say he could find himself jockeying in a delegation jam-up during this year’s redistricting process, as the commission grapples with North Jersey population reductions that will force the state to give up a congressman.
