11th Congressional District Campaign Disclosures

Forwarding from the Lindsey campaign:

Inside the Numbers:

The campaign disclosures for the 11th Congressional District are in, and it’s clear that this is a race between former Congressman Bob Barr and GOP State Representative Ed Lindsey. 

Here are some key takeaways from the campaign finance reports:

Ed Lindsey has more ‘Cash on Hand’ to fund his campaign than any other candidate, including Barr who spent a stunning $102,000 in the first quarter.

Bob Barr is collapsing.  On April 14, 2013, his campaign claimed in an AJC article that they would raise over $3 million for the entire campaign.  That would require a pace of over $500,000 raised per quarter.  They raised less than half that on this first report.

The first reports usually represent the “low hanging fruit” of campaign contributions.  Given the aggressive fundraising in the US Senate and Governor races, fundraising will be difficult for congressional races across the state.  The poor reports by Loudermilk and Pridemore show they do not have the broad support needed to raise the funds necessary to win.

Important note:  Lindsey raised the most primary money from Georgia based donors.
