Hewitt campaign nearly broke

GOP House candidate raised just $303 in first quarter

Martin Hewitt, who entered the 11th district congressional race last year as a primary opponent to incumbent Rodney Frelinghuysen, raised just $303 in the first quarter of 2018 in his bid for the Republican nomination.  He has cash-on-hand of a whopping $266.

That brings Hewitt’s total fundraising up to $8,962 and a debt of $2,471.  His biggest donor this quarter – his only donor, really – is Robin Schafer, an East Brunswick management consultant who contributed $100.

Hewitt, a Morristown attorney, is one of five Republicans seeking the open seat in the June primary, along with Assemblyman Jay Webber, hedge fund manager Antony Ghee, businessman Peter DeNeufville, and former Kean administration official Patrick Allocco.
