Senate/House Fundraising Update: Incumbents Impress

House Races: Doherty's Dough: Republican Brendan Doherty has raised over $300,000 in just the past 50 days since announcing his campaign against Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., a GOP source tells Hotline On Call. $50,000 of that is the former Rhode Island State Police Superintendent's own money, but it's still a very quick start against the freshman Democrat, who could even face a primary and has seen his stock fall at home and has faced questions over finances he left the city with when he was Providence mayor. Banking Granite: Rep. Frank Guinta, R-N.H., has raised $302,887 in the 2nd Quarter, WMUR's James Pindell reports. It brings the freshman Republican's yearly total to over $500,000 raised. Guinta will face a rematch with former Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., who he defeated in 2010, but was never known as a prodigious fundraiser. Shea-Porter will have to win a Democratic primary of her own first, though, and Pindell also reported that Democrat Joanne Dowdell raised $105,000 for her bid. Redistricting Insurance: Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., is likely to face a race against Rep. Jeff Landry in 2012, thanks to Bayou State redistricting that eliminated a seat, and Boustany is stockpiling cash ahead of an anticipated contest. He raised nearly $475,000 in the second quarter, according to his filing with the FEC, and still has $1.1 million cash on hand. Making Hay: Rep. Nan Hayworth, R-N.Y., will report raising over $381,000 in the second quarter, YNN's Capitol Tonight reports. She still had $630,000 in the bank, too. Rapid Response: On the same day that Democrats landed Iraq War veteran Brendan Mullen as a candidate in Indiana's 2nd District race, Republican Jackie Walorski responded with a solid haul. She raised $225,000 during the second quarter and has $267,000 cash on hand, according to a Republican source.
