Ohio: GOP Encouraged by Renacci’s Early Money

After a little more than one month of fundraising, businessman Jim Renacci (R) will report raising $202,000 for his campaign against freshman Rep. John Boccieri (D) in the 16th district.

Renacci, a certified public accountant who is the general manager of an arena football team, also will report to the Federal Election Commission that he has $180,000 in cash on hand as of the end of September.

Tory Mazzola, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, said that “this is a strong showing that demonstrates GOP momentum.—

Boccieri easily won a 2008 race to succeed retiring Rep. Ralph Regula (R), though the GOP is targeting Boccieri for defeat in a Canton-area district that voted narrowly for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in the presidential race.
