Assemblyman Joe Howarth (R-Evesham), who got thrashed in his bid for renomination in the June 4 Republican primary, raised $106,166 in his bid for a third term and spent $103,786.

He raised $19,607 during the final month of the campaign, and spent $28,888.

Howarth lost GOP organization support for his third term after party leaders accused him of plotting to switch parties and then denied him support for re-election.

Assemblyman Ryan Peters (R-Hainesport) and former Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield bested Howarth, who attached himself to President Donald Trump unsuccessfully sought to rebrand himself as a MAGA conservative, by a 2-1 margin.

Peters (5,215) and Stanfield (5,285) carried every town in the 8th district against Howarth, who received 2,673 votes.  Jason Huf (1,943) finished a distant fourth.

Peters raised $162,626 and spent $105,524.  He has $57,101 cash-on-hand.

Stanfield raised $113,660, including in-kind contributions from the Burlington County Republican Committee, and spent $76,295.  She has $17,539 in the bank.
