Booker hauls in $2.6 million in Q3

By Nikita Biryukov, October 15 2020 5:01 pm

U.S. Sen. Cory Booker raised nearly $2.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Booker received just shy of $1.6 million in individual contributions and $199,112 from political committees.

He also brought in $801,924.75 in transfers from other candidate committees and PACS, including $724,003.20 from the Booker Victory Fund.

He went into October with $5.2 million in his war chest, having spent $775,081.62 in the third quarter.

The new figures bring Booker’s fundraising total for the cycle to $15.3 million.

The above fundraising totals do not include independent expenditures made for or against either candidate, nor do they include spending by candidates’ political action committees.

Third-quarter filings for Rik Mehta, Booker’s Republican challenger, are not yet available. Mehta reported raising $395,879.46 between Oct. 16, 2019 and June 30, 2020, with $350,000 of that money coming from a personal loan to his campaign.

He had $17,712.41 in his war chest at the end of June.

Republicans last won a U.S. Senate race in New Jersey in 1972.
