Guthrie raises $250K in third quarter; Boswell tops him with $313K

The campaign of Republican Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green announced today it brought in $250,000 during the third quarter and spent nearly that much as the 2nd Congressional District race moved into television advertising and candidates stepped up campaign rhetoric. 

Since joining the race in late January, Guthrie has raised more than $1 million for his effort to fill the seat being vacated next year by fellow Republican Ron Lewis of Cecilia. 

Guthrie had $680,000 in cash on hand heading into the final month of the campaign, which is about $20,000 more than he had in his campaign chest at the close of the previous quarter that ended June 30. 

Of the $250,000 Guthrie brought in this quarter, about $150,000 was from individuals while the rest came from political committees including PACs. The campaign spent $231,000 during the three-month reporting period. 


Democrat David Boswell topped his Republican opponent in fundraising last quarter but still lagged behind Guthrie in cash on hand heading into the final month of the campaign. 

A release from the Boswell camp showed Boswell brought in $313,000 in contributions from July through the end of September while dishing out $125,500 as he campaigned. 

Boswell closed out this most recent reporting period with $232,100 on hand – a vast improvement over the last reporting period that ended June 30 and left Boswell with only $45,000 in campaign cash. 

Boswell received $197,000 of his contributions from individuals and $115,000 from political committees.
