Swing State Project as always does an excellent job, this time centralizing fundraising figures for members of Congress in swing districts.
Two big takeaways for me:
-Not that I thought he was anyway, but Mike McIntyre sure doesn't look like someone planning to make a bid for the Senate next year. His 121k raised is nothing out of the ordinary. By comparison a couple of Democrats who are looking to move up- Joe Sestak and Carolyn Maloney- raised over a million dollars and nearly 600k respectively. McIntyre certainly could pick up the pace if he decided to make a bid but he doesn't appear to have been laying the groundwork during this quarter.
-Larry Kissell's numbers aren't that hot. He raised 156k and has 214k on hand. Near as I can tell that lags all of his freshmen Democratic colleagues in competitive districts. It doesn't mean Kissell's in peril- he's shown an ability to do a lot with a little, especially in his 2006 campaign. But it's not likely to scare any potential challengers off either.
