Peters outraises Howarth in 8th district Assembly race

Stanfield transfers cash from sheriff campaign account

Assemblyman Ryan Peters (R-Hainesport) and former Burlington County Sheriff Jean Stanfield have a cash advantage over Assemblyman Joe Howarth (R-Evesham) during the final weeks of the Republican State Assembly primary in the 8th district.

Howarth is running off the line after losing party support in his bid for a third term in the legislature.

Peters raised $94,786 and has $33,277 cash-on-hand.

Stanfield raised $24,388 – including an $11,725 transfer from her sheriff campaign account – and has $19,825 banked.

Howarth has raised $76,710 and reported cash-on-hand of $24,517.    He contributed $14,000 to the Burlington County Republican Committee less than a month before the party announced they would not support his re-election.

A joint campaign account for Peters and Howarth was closed, with each walking away with $4,100 after an outstanding loan to the Burlington GOP was paid off.

Howarth’s big donor was the Operating Engineers, which contributed $8,200 after the assemblyman was jettisoned by his party.  The contribution is evidence of the union’s pledge to stand by those who supported them during the fight to fund the Transportation Trust Fund in good times and in bad.
