Republican Rosemary Becchi raised $164,032 during the first three months of the year for her campaign to unseat freshman Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair) in New Jersey’s 11th district.

Becchi has $252,910 cash-on-hand, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission this evening.

The former U.S. Senate Finance Committee tax counsel had been campaigning for the GOP nomination in the neighboring 7th district, but switched to the 11th in January.

She has raised $625,778 for her congressional campaign, including a $150,000 personal loan, but has spent $372,867 so far this cycle.  Becchi’s campaign is also carrying an addition debt of $31,186.

Sherrill raised $782,929 during the first three months of 2020 and has $2,774,970 cash-on-hand.  She has brought in $3,395,363 since taking office in January 2019.

President Donald Trump carried the 11th in 2016 by one percentage point, but Sherrill flipped the district after 34 years of Republican control two years later by 15 points.

The 11th district has 361 more Democrats than Republicans.  When the district was drawn after the 2010 census, Republicans outnumbered Democrats by 24,176.

Sherrill and Becchi are unopposed in the July 7 primary election.
