Brian Fitzherbert raised nothing in the three months since he dropped his bid for Congress in New Jersey’s 2nd district and endorsed Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis), even though he has $30,788 in campaign debts.
Fitzherbert was struggling to raise money even before Van Drew switched parties and announced he would seek re-election as a Republican. He raised just $25,257 even though he entered the race in early 2019.
He has $54.46 cash-on-hand, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. Fitherbert reported spending $15,090 during the first three months of this year.
Fitzherbert paid $5,850 to Amanda Woloshen Glass, now the campaign manager for GOP U.S. Senate candidate Rik Mehta, and still owes her $17,600.
The rest of his debt comes from payments due to several consulting firms.
The 2020 race was his second failure.
Fitzherbert sought the GOP nomination in 2018 and won the organization line in Gloucester County, but dropped out of the race after he failed to secure enough signatures to get on the ballot.
He has now taken back his old post as chairman of the Atlantic County Young Republicans.
