Malinwoski, Lance lead CD7 fundraising

Jois war chest nothing to scoff at

Tom Malinowski beat out Rep. Leonard Lance in fundraising between April 1 and May 16, but the incumbent, not facing a serious primary challenge had more money to put in the bank at the end of the period.

According to pre-primary FEC filings, Malinowksi raised $219,500.02 over the period, with $25,800 coming from political committees. Meanwhile, Lance raised $132,830, of which $74,750 came from PACs or other candidate committees.

But Malinowski, facing two primary challenges from the left, spent $177,850.01 over the period, more than twice Lance’s expenditure of $82,678.50.

Malinowksi’s primary challengers lagged significantly behind the fundraising of the former assistant secretary of state, with social worker Peter Jacob raising $15,464.12 and attorney Goutam Jois bringing in a meager $12,083.18.

While Jacob’s war chest had just $28,539.27 at the end of the reporting period, Jois moves into the closing weeks with a respectable $285,078.50.

But while respectable, that number pales before the bankrolls of Malinowksi and Lance, who had $781,594.13 and $900,150.49 in their war chests, respectively.

Editor’s note: This article previously incorrectly stated that Lance had received no contributions from PACs. He actually received $74,750, the lion’s share of his take this reporting period, from PACs.
