Dave Jamison has raised just about $30,000 for his campaign for State Treasurer and has $7000 cash on hand. His opponent, Jim Heavens, raised less than $3000, but loaned his campaign $25,000. Heavens has $2,228.04 in the bank.
Jamison is the favorite to win the primary. He is better known to Iowa Republicans and is a tireless campaigner. He has also begun to run radio ads in parts of the state.
The Secretary of State race is going to be interesting. Eichhorn is better known, but Council Bluffs City Councilman Matt Schultz is a dynamic and articulate candidate. Eichhorn raised just over $9000 for his campaign, while Schultz raised nearly $12,000. The third candidate in the race, Chris Sanger, has $397 dollars in his campaign account.
The race for the Republican nomination for Secretary of State looks to be a toss up. If Schultz can find a way to run radio ads in the closing days of the campaign, he would be in a good position to win the nomination. If he can’t, then Eichhorn, who unsuccessfully ran for the U.S. Senate in 2008, will likely get the nod.
