From July 1st to September 30th, the Democratic nominee spent more than he brought in, which had a large effect on his remaining cash on hand.
Overall, Strouse raised $235,621 over that time period. This is a slight improvement over his fundraising in the second quarter but the big issue was his spending.
In order to raise his profile against the three-term incumbent Strouse had to expend $330,141.
As a result, he has just $174,200 left in cash on hand. His opponent, on the other hand, has over $2.1 million in the bank. This discrepancy will be the Democrat’s toughest challenge as he seeks to upset Fitzpatrick in the last weeks of the race.
We will have a more in-depth analysis of both candidates FEC reports later this week.
