U.S. Rep. Walorski widens funding gap in U.S. House race (and the difference is larger than it was in the heated 2012 race)

U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski is widening the gap in the fight for money in the race for the 2nd District U.S. House seat.

And the GOPer is further ahead of her chief challenger, Democrat Joe Bock, than she was this time two years ago against Brendan Mullen, the Democratic standard bearer in the 2012 race.

Here are some of the key numbers:

Here are more numbers from the latest filings by Walorski and Bock.

  • Walorski generated $329,682 in contributions in the April 17 through June 30 period, $154,932 of that from individuals and $174,750 from groups like political action committees, or PACS. She had $135,730 in disbursements, most of that campaign spending.
  • Bock generated $199,670 in contributions, including $135,700 from individuals, $5,000 from political party committees and $58,970 from groups like PACs. He had $98,404 in disbursements, all of that campaign expenditures.

Campaigning in the race is starting to gear up. Walorski released her first television ad of the campaign last week.

Libertarian Jeff Petermann of Elkhart is also running for the 2nd District post, but he didn’t report any finances to the FEC.
