Most Targeted Democrats Outraised By GOP Challengers

October 22, 2010

House Republican challengers continue to show impressive fundraising strength in the final stretch of the election, with 34 of the 56 most vulnerable House Democrats getting outraised by their Republican challengers, from October 1-13.

The late fundraising tallies are another sign that the Republican momentum is only growing, and the party's momentum is being reflected in a surge of grassroots donations to GOP challengers.

The fundraising continues a trend from third FEC quarter reports earlier this month, where 44 Democratic incumbents were outraised by their Republican challengers.

As always, some Republican numbers jump off the page. Republican Kristi Noem (S.D.) continued her furious fundraising pace, hauling in $275,000 in her challenge to Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D). Herseth Sandlin only reported raising a mere $59,000. Noem now has double what the congresswoman has in the bank for the final stretch -- $502,000 to $225,000, respectively. That's an ominous sign for Herseth-Sandlin's re-election prospects.

Democratic firebrand and fundraising dynamo Alan Grayson (Fla). was outraised by former state Sen. Daniel Webster (R), who has been a poor fundraiser thus far. Webster raised $395,000 in the first two weeks of October, while Grayson reported having raised $295,000 -- but that included a $95,000 loan. Grayson still has a $814,000 to $340,000 cash on hand advantage.

House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank's (D-Mass.) challenger, Republican Sean Bielat raised a stunning $654,000 in the two weeks, more than doubling Frank's tally.

Several Republicans still posted disappointing numbers, given the environment. Rep. Lincoln Davis (D-Tenn.), who has recently become a top GOP target, brought in $243,000. That's significantly more than Republican challenger Scott DesJarlais' $53,000. Davis has a $385,000 to $3,500 cash on hand advantage in the final stretch.

Stay tuned to House Race Hotline this afternoon for the complete list.
