New Jersey: Myers Lags Financially After Tough Primary

Coming off an expensive primary fight in early June, 3rd district Republican nominee Chris Myers reported $155,000 in cash on hand at the end of the second quarter, according to a release from his campaign last week.

Myers, a vice president at Lockheed Martin who also serves as mayor of Medford, raised $249,000 during the second quarter. That puts him at about $627,000 raised for the cycle, which is still well behind his Democratic opponent in the battle to replace retiring Rep. Jim Saxton (R).

Last week, Democratic state Sen. John Adler announced he had raised more than $1.9 million for his Congressional bid (after being unopposed in the Democratic primary) and had $1.4 million on hand at the end of the second quarter.
