Bobby Schilling Now Has More Cash on Hand Than Phil Hare

Remember when nobody had heard of Bobby Schilling?

EAST MOLINE, IL–In a sign of great momentum with only 15 days until Election Day, Bobby Schilling announced he outraised incumbent Congressman Phil Hare $375,262.38 to $324,909.96 in the third quarter . . .

According to third quarter FEC reports, Phil Hare reported raising $130,708.75 from individuals while the majority of his support came from special interest PACs. 

Schilling raised $276,952.38 from individuals, totaling 74% of his total third quarter contributions. Schilling has received donations from more than 2,500 individuals.

Schilling now leads in cash on hand $420,962.69 to Phil Hare’s $327,227.04.

Communications Director Bobby Frederick highlighted the fact that Hare spent more than five times the amount Schilling did in the third quarter.

Apparently people care that Phil Hare doesn’t care about the Constitution. (That video has now been viewed more than 427,000 times.)
