Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) raised more than six times as much as his Republican challenger in the first two weeks of October, according to pre-general election reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
The two-term incumbent raised $188,559 between Oct. 1 and Oct. 14, while former investment banker Frank Pallotta brought in just $28,684, all of which came from individual contributions.
The incumbent brought in $151,559 from individuals and $37,000 from political committees.
Neither candidate reported spending much of their money in those two weeks.
Gottheimer, one of the state’s most prolific fundraisers, expended $399,068 but still had more than $8.3 million in his war chest.
Pallotta disbursed $191,031 during the same period, leaving his with $532,182 banked.
The above figures do not include fundraising or spending by the candidates’ political action committees, nor do they include independent expenditures made on their behalf.
