Eugene Mazo, a Rutgers law professor challenging Rep. Donald Payne (D-Newark) in the 10th district Democratic primary, has raised $29,221 and has $24,151 cash-on-hand.

Mazo raised $24,083 in the first quarter of the year.  He’s spent $5,069 so far, 81% of it in the last three months.

Payne raised $49,903 in the first quarter of 2020 and has brought in $325,451 since January 2019, but the five-term Democratic congressman has spent $297,564 so far and has $83,096 remaining in his campaign warchest.

John Flora, a Jersey City public school teacher, raised just $1,607 so far this year, with $7,102 in the bank.

The 10th is one of the most Democratic districts in the nation.  Hillary Clinton won it by 72 points in 2016 – only ten other congressional districts gave her a higher percentage.
