Bill Hughes, candidate for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Representative in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District, announced that for the first quarter of 2014, his campaign raised $190,515.
These fundraising totals will be part of the report for the first quarter of 2014, which his campaign committee will file with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) by April 15, according to the Hughes Campaign.
“I’m humbled and grateful for the outpouring of grassroots support I’ve received from the voters in New Jersey’s 2ndDistrict,” said Bill Hughes, a former federal prosecutor. “We’ve accomplished a lot in a short amount of time, but there is much work to be done if we hope to bring back commonsense, bipartisan leadership to a Congress that hasn’t worked for middle class Americans in years.”
Hughes said his fundraising totals of over $375,683 with $328,171 cash on hand since announcing, is record setting for the district during that time period.
He’s running against incumbent U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-2).
