Himes Leads CT House Democrats In Campaign Cash

Rep. Jim Himes has the largest campaign bank account out of Connecticut's five Democratic House members who are up for re-election next year.

Himes ended June with nearly $2.2 million in cash on hand, topping Rep. Elizabeth Esty (more than $1 million), Rep. Joe Courtney ($783,872.89), Rep. John Larson ($377,762.24) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro ($125,571.46), according to new filings with the Federal Election Commission.

Esty is the only member of the House delegation who has a declared challenger. Craig Diangelo of New Britain, who entered the race last month, reported he had $1,773 in his campaign account at the end of June.

While Himes has the most money, Esty was the top fundraisier through the end of June, bringing in $619,828.58 in total contributions, the majority coming from individual donors. Himes has raised $519,147.39 since the beginning of January.

DeLauro has raised $339,169.22 this year, Larson has raised $322,349.15 and Courtney $272,463.43.
