Earlier today I broke down the fundraising numbers for Wisconsin’s 2010 U.S. Senate race, so let’s take a look inside the numbers for the race for the Fourth Congressional District, a seat currently held by Rep. Gwen Moore. According to the latest financial reports available from the Federal Elections Commission, Rep. Moore received $111,542 in donations during the last reporting period, and she ended the period with $51,766 cash on hand.
Her opponent, Mayflower descendant Dan Sebring, received $4,502 in donations (though it’s worth noting $1,902 of that was a donation to the campaign by Dan Sebring). Sebring ended the reporting period with $516 cash on hand, and debts owed in the amount of $3,560. Having reviewed the numbers for Dan Sebring, I can’t help but wonder how fiscally responsible he’d be as a member of Congress if he can’t even spend within his means as a candidate?
