Tricia Flanagan is sitting on a $2,234 warchest in her bid to become the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate against Cory Booker in New Jersey.

Flanagan had raised $14,836 so far, including $4,567 during the first three months of 2020.

Two of her rivals have all of the organizational support.

Rik Mehta has the organization line in Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Essex, Gloucester, Hudson, Hunterdon, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, Passaic, Salem, Somerset, Union and Warren counties, and the endorsement of his home county GOP organization in Morris.

Singh has lines in Ocean, Atlantic, Cumberland and Cape May.

Mehta has $181,164 cash-on-hand after raising $88,179 during the first three months of the year.  He has raised $374,755 for the chance to take on Booker, most of it from a $315,000 personal loan he made to his own campaign.

Republicans have not won a U.S. Senate race in New Jersey since 1972, a 0-16 losing streak that has existed longer than every other state but Hawaii.

In 2018, Bob Hugin spent more than $36 million of his own money, but lost 54%-43% to incumbent Bob Menendez.

Flanagan ran as an independent in that race and won 16,101 votes (0.5%), trailing Menendez by 1,695,553 votes.
