Rep. Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-Long Branch), the chairman of the powerful House Energy & Commerce Committee, continues to amass a significant campaign warchest.
Pallone has $2,580,929 cash-on-hand, according to reports he filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission.
The seventeen-term Democrat raised $424,234 during the 2nd quarter of the year and has had a fundraising haul of $896,055 during the first six months of 2019.
Pallone is reporting a debt of $38,894.
His campaign account has been replenished since the end of 2014, when an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic U.S. Senate nomination in 2013 and an unexpectedly tough challenge against Monmouth County freeholder Anna Little brought Pallone’s coffers down to $504,059.
Voters in New Jersey’s 6th district returned Pallone to Congress in 2018 with 64% of the vote.
