FEC Wrap: The Latham Show

Some notable House/Senate fundraising news from Thursday as we approach Jan. 31:


-- Rep. Tom Latham, R-Iowa, released robust fourth quarter campaign numbers today: $345,000 raised and over $1.9 million cash on hand to start 2012. Latham's campaign is touting the cash on hand number as an Iowa off-year record, but most importantly, it dwarfs that of Democratic Rep. Leonard Boswell, his likely opponent. Boswell has yet to release fourth quarter numbers, but his cash on hand was under $400,000 after the third quarter.

-- Matt Doheny, a Republican running in New York's 23rd District, posted a very good initial quarter of fundraising. He raised over $300,000, which goes a long way in the Watertown and Plattsburgh media markets.


-- Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., raised $1.4 million and ended 2011 with nearly $5 million in the bank. It's another solid haul for the vulnerable incumbent. Nearly two-thirds of McCaskill's donors gave less than $100. None of McCaskill's GOP opponents have released thier numbers yet.
