Republican Assembly incumbents in the 10th legislative district continued to outraise challengers backed by former Ocean County Republican Chairman George Gilmore, filings with the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission show.
Assemblyman John Catalano (R-Brick) was the top fundraiser among the district’s Assembly candidates, bringing in $20,657 between May 8 and May 25. He had $18,477 left in his war chest.
Assemblyman Greg McGuckin (R-Toms River) led the rest of the pack, raising $10,707. With $49,374 banked, he had the largest war chest among district 10 Republicans seeking a seat in the lower chamber.
A joint committee for the two assemblymen and State Sen. James Holzapfel (R-Toms River), who is unopposed, raised no money over the reporting period, though it still had $18,087 in reserves.
Assembly challenger Geraldine Ambrosio raised $9,193 and had $6,173 left in her war chest at the end of the reporting period.
Her running mate, Brian Quinn, raised $6,120 but spent all of the money, leaving his campaign account with a balance of zero.
