In the race for the 4th District Congressional seat, more money has been contributed to Democrat Paul Carmouche than to Republicans Dr. John Fleming and Chris Gorman combined.
According to Federal Election Commission filings for the first half of the year, Carmouche has contributions of $481,882, compared to $104,058 for Dr. Fleming and $301,350 for Gorman.
Fleming and Gorman have more money on hand, having contributed heavily to their own campaigns, however.
Fleming has kicked in $500,420 of his own money to his campaign, while Gorman shows that he has put in $396,838 of his own money.
Carmouche has put in no personal money.
Willie Banks, Jr (D) shows receipts of $28,907, $10,000 of which is his personal money.
John Milkovich (D) has $49,886 on hand, only $5,236 of it his own money.
Jeff Thompson (R) has yet to file.
If you go by the conventional political wisdom, this is a very good sign for Carmouche.
