Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — money in the bank

By Jim Ellis

April 23, 2018 — The new first quarter Federal Election Commission campaign disclosure reports are now in the public domain, and the Daily Kos Elections website has compiled the financial statistics for all the competitive races as is their usual practice.

Taking their work a bit further, we have categorized various groups of House members and candidates in terms of their cash-on-hand figures. At first analysis, it appears Republican incumbents across the board are taking the Democrats’ threats seriously, as overall fundraising for both parties is extremely high at this point in the election cycle. No fewer than 35 incumbents and candidates have more than $1.5 million in the bank as we just now enter the second quarter of the campaign year.
