Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Tommy Sowers outraised U.S. Rep. Jo Ann Emerson by a 12-to-1 margin from Oct. 1 to 13, according to the last campaign funding reports required before the Nov. 2 election. Sowers, the Democratic challenger, raised $57,773, while Emerson, the 14-year Republican incumbent, raised $4,878. As of Oct. 13, the two campaigns' cash on hand was essentially even, with Sowers at $267,000 and Emerson at $272,000. In the last quarter ending Sept. 30, Sowers was one of only six Democratic House challenger candidates in the country to raise more than their Republican opponent.
