Himes Outpaces GOP Rivals in Campaign Fundraising

By Ann Radelat

Washington—Rep. Jim Himes, D-4th District, has outpaced his GOP rivals in campaign fundraising, pulling in $367,000 in the first three months of 2014. His campaign reported more than $1.4 million in cash on hand March 31.

Republican challenger Dan Debicella, who began fundraising in the fall, raised nearly $205,000 in the first quarter of the year and ended the reporting period with $346,552 in his campaign coffers, the latest filings with the Federal Election Commissions shows. Although that’s much less money than Himes’s campaign has on hand, it’s enough for Debicella to mount a vigorous campaign.

Former Republican Rep. Nancy Johnson, who represented the 5th District until being unseated by now-Sen. Chris Murphy, donated $250 to Debicella’s campaign, and Steve Obsitnik, who ran unsuccessfully against Himes two years ago, gave $500.

But so far, none of the GOP gubernatorial candidates have donated or even endorsed Debicella, although Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti did before joining the race to unseat Gov. Dannel P.Malloy.
