Democratic congressional candidate Amy Kennedy raised $334,183 between March 1 and June 17 and has $236,004 in the bank heading into the July 7 Democratic primary in New Jersey’s 2nd district.

Kennedy has raised $584,258 for her bid to take on Rep. Jeff Van Drew (R-Dennis) in the fall.

Her main rival for the nomination, Brigid Callahan Harrison, reported raising $157,255 during the same time period and has $9,776 left in the bank.  She has raised $280,200 since entering the race at the tail end of last year.

Will Cunningham, a former chief investigator for the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has $55,773 in the bank.  He’s raised $73,919 in the last fundraising period and $155,698 total.

Kennedy received the endorsement of Gov. Phil Murphy and Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver this week and has the organization line in Atlantic County, which makes up about 41% of the Democratic primary vote.

Harrison has the endorsement of party organizations in Cape May, Cumberland, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Salem counties, and the backing of New Jersey’s two U.S. Senators, Bob Menendez and Cory Booker.
