If you think Congress needs Funk, then Funk needs funds.
Third District Congressional candidate Dave Funk filed his first quarter report with the Federal Election Commission and it shows that his campaign has raised $24,997.25 during the first three months of 2010. Since announcing his campaign in August, Funk has raised $71,309.25 and has $15,669.20 cash on hand as the campaign enters into the final stage before the June 8th, primary.
Of the nearly $25,000 that Funk raised in the 1st quarter, $8368.25 of that was in the form of in-kind contributions by Funk himself, or three people that in-kinded $2400,00 in consulting services. Funk’s cash on-hand number also includes $7,200.00 in contributions that can only be used in the general election.
While Funk has not found a lot of success in the fundraising arena, he does have some grassroots support. Today he announced that Brinn Shjegstad, will serve as his Young Professional’s Coalition Chair. Shjegstad has her Ph.D and is the co-director of the Iowa Policy Institute.
The only other 3rd CD candidate who has released their 1st quarter fundraising numbers in Jim Gibbons. Gibbons reported raising $161,000 and has $265,000 cash on hand.
